CONFIG_RTC is the option to configure the driver for /proc/rtc for a PC
style system.  This most probably won't work on a DECstation; you'll
probably have to write your own driver.  See drivers/char/rtc.c and
drivers/sgi/char/ds1286.c for examples of such drivers.

Btw, if you need data sheets for RTC chips - Dallas Semiconductor's site
has piles of them.
