This test has been passing on VMS for a while.

The patch to fix bs-nl handling on VMS submitted on November 27, 2014 may have totally replaced the previous code in place and the test still passes.

This issue can be closed.

The second line of a multi-line override is failing on VMS.

It is passing through to the operating system the "@" character that is supposed to be inhibiting reporting of the recipe line.
This is causing VMS to look for a command file instead of the command.

run_command_with_output(/lcl_root/make/tests/work/features/override.log_3,): mak
e -f /lcl_root/make/tests/work/features/override.mk_2 "foo=Hello"
run_command_with_output returned 512.
Error running make (expected 0; got 512): make -f /lcl_root/make/tests/work/feat
ures/override.mk_2 "foo=Hello"
Comparing Output ........ FAILED (3/4 passed)

EAGLE> make -f /lcl_root/make/tests/work/features/override.mk_2 "foo=Hello"
First comes the definition.
%DCL-E-OPENIN, error opening LCL_ROOT:[make.tests]echo.COM; as input
-RMS-E-FNF, file not found
/lcl_root/make/tests/work/features/override.mk_2:6: recipe for target 'all' failed
