A patch to fix bs-nl handling on VMS was submitted to the make-bugs list on November 27, 2014.

That patch included a fix for this issue.

Once that patch is applied, this issue can be closed.

The test scripts in make are using the shell null command or colon character for null commands.

The VMS null command is the word "continue".

For better compatibility, it would be useful if make handled this translation on the VMS platform.
