Hi - Sorry for the delayed response. It is here:
You will need to download the "usr.tar.gz" archive, and extract these
files from it:
The file "games/lib/compat" is the compatibility mode "stub", that can
run a binary in PDP-11 compatibility mode, does system call emulation
(it looks like, at one time, it even supported running RT-11 binaries),
and stuff like that. It actually uses the PDP-11 compatibility mode of
the VAX (i.e., it is not a PDP-11 emulator), so it only works on VAXen
that have compatibility mode.
Anyway, I suspect that if you take the binaries I've mentioned above,
and drop them into your V7 filesystem under /usr (so that the files end
up in /usr/games/lib), it may simply run.
