The archive is, and that's what Bob called it, so
I was guessing the -x were the test releases and V2.9 was the
actual release.

People are working on DELQA support, but I don't know the
current status.

I haven't tested the speed at this time. There's also a gcc
bug that prevents using optimization on the VAX emulation.
The PDP10 emulation was also affected but there's been a
workaround added. The workaround is supposed to go in the
VAX emulation later (from the release notes).
