To run anything interactively on an IBM mainframe *without* benefit of a
connection manager (like TSO, ISPF, or CICS) is, IMHO impossible, unless you
are running a client OS that handles those activities.

What, am I to think the Xbill will run on an IBM s/390, since Linux was
ported? What would it display on?
