Does not look like anything vital to VMS got removed.

Configure basically worked under current GNV.

And a few tweaks later with out changing any files checked out of the Mercurial repository, make is producing a functional python binary before it quits.

bash-4.2$ ./python
    I'm not Dead Yet, I think I'll go for a Walk
bash-4.2$ ./python
Python 3.5.0a0 (default, Jun 17 2014, 00:03:16) [C] on openvms0
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>  Exit
bash-4.2$ uname -a
OpenVMS EAGLE 0 V8.4 AlphaServer_DS10_617_MHz Alpha Alpha HP/OpenVMS

More work is needed of course, mostly adding some more libraries that Python is expecting and showing GNV how to have configure and make find them.  A lot of compile warnings need to be resolved.
