VMS does have fchmod and fchown.

The test for fchmod in t/io/fs.t does, however, reveal a wrinkle
that is also true of chmod on VMS: a mode argument of zero does
not mean turn off all permisions but rather set permissions to the
user's default.  This is probably an ancient behavior from
pre-standard days.  For now, just skip the affected test and
document what's different.
