I have never tried, but I would guess that this would require a
modification of the pvs makefile (or whatever mechanism it uses).  On
the other hand, PVS is such a complex system that if you weren't
comfortable modifying the makefile, you might not be comfortable
modifying the system; the makefile is likely to be the *least*
complicated part.  Dumping an image is pretty simple; making an
application somewhat more complex.

On the other other hand, if you have a real need for this, you might
find the Allegro Enterprise license worth the money.  My company does.
I might add that Franz' customer support is wonderful.

I might further add that if you are going to use a 64-bit instead of a
32-bit architecture, this whole question is moot, since I believe only
enterprise is available on these systems.
