I am just not sure, for which platform were these modules compiled, and for
which version of OpenVMS system. I suppose, there could be some differences
between the OpenVMS versions. At least you can see them in the source code,
where there are some #ifdef and #if directives concerning the OpenVMS
version string.

Please report, if you succeeded in making your Python running properly,
including the platform and OS info.
