I guess I should also point out that currently we do not currently 
support GemStone on 20.04[1]. GemStone will likely run on "unsupported 
platforms", but until we have actually tested a release on a platform, 
we do not support it.

You can see that via travis-ci[2], a number of older GemStone releases 
are being tested on 16.04 and internally we do run GsDevKit_home tests 
prior to release on the latest supported linux platform (currently 18.04).

So unless someone else beats me to it (via PR), I will eventually get 
around to adding 20.04 support to GsDevKit_home.
