I would not build a production system on vp/ix.  Too much of a resource hog.
Why don't you look at one of the dBase - based packages like SBT and run
it under the unix version of FoxBase?  That should be a good combination.

I used to use the SBT accounting software as my VAR package back in
the good old CP/M days.  it ran well under the CP/M version of
dBase II.  That was my last experience so buyer beware!!!
