  really?  it will?  perhaps you refer (well, "refer" is _overly_ generous)
  to the problem of the missing "prof" file referenced by the build process
  because the Linux Trial Edition believes it's an Enterprise Edition.  it
  has a fairly simple fix.  this is the relevant line in

#+allegro-cl-enterprise (require :prof) ;; not allowed in runtime images

  this is what it should look like:

#+allegro-cl-enterprise (ignore-errors (require :prof)) ;; not allowed in runtime images

  let me know if you still have problems.

  I don't know about Harlequin, but Franz Inc have always had evaluation
  periods for their Unix products, even before Linux existed.  it is
  completely unwarranted to draw conclusions from one possible answer to
  the question you ask without actually giving anybody a chance to answer.

  VAX/VMS support was discontinued some time ago.  (sorry.)
