The GNV Project implements a port of the GNU utilities to OpenVMS with the intent of providing a framework for porting open source software to OpenVMS. A complementary SourceForge Project is VMS-Ports (https://sourceforge.net/projects/vms-ports/), there are discussions of process and procedure there as well as regular conference calls to review progress and access how to improve the environment.
For the most up to date version of GNV please download the base GNV kit from the FILES section of this project. As of 1 June 2015 this was V3.0.1 and was available for both I64 and AXP architectures.
Once you have GNV installed you should then download and install the additional kits under FILES for the most up to date copies of the the various utilities. As of 1 June 2015 this included:
* ld_tools (complier wrappers and linker)
Additional kits are in the works so you should check back or make sure to get on one of the mailing lists.
