OK. But do not hold your breath for results today as I just got dragged into a big "mess" with a customer...

On other platforms we are doing in the following way:

- libmzq (this is the core component, has to be compiled first)
- zmq_server (executable)
- libczmq (API for C - as opposed to native C++ API)

At this point other language bindings can be compiled but this tends to 
be tricky, so I would leave that to be done last (libjzmq = Java, 
libpyzmq = Python, libdnzmq = .NET)

- chat
- exchange

("camera" won't work as it depends on Linux video capturing libraries)

As for perf (performance tests) I would build 
perf/tests/zmq/local_lat.cpp, perf/tests/zmq/remote_lat.cpp, 
perf/tests/zmq/local_thr.cpp and perf/tests/remote_thr.cpp.

These four are enough to run latency & throughput tests on OpenVMS 
platform. Results from the tests may be of interest.
