installation difficulties

Hi, all.

I'm trying to install gpc on a new machine.  I've used it for years,
but somehow this new installation is giving me fits.  So I've got some
nice GPC programs, but no way to modify them - and deadlines creeping
up!

I'd like to work under PENG, but for now I'm just working on the
command line.  But it isn't going so well:

When I type gpc --automake -g -v diffus12.pas, I get a nice
screenful of messages, then eventually gpc1.exe reports:
module 'grx20' could not be compiled.

but when I try to compile grx20.pas independently, I get a
different message, this time from ld.exe:
cannot open linker script file djgpp.djl: no such file or directory (ENOENT)

and sure enough, in the specs file, it shows that ld should get a
string -Tdjgpp.djl, but there is no such file (djgpp.djl) on my computer, 
or in the manifest lists, or indeed anywhere I could find on the entire
internet!

So obviously a lot of pieces are working well, but some not.

I am using GPC 2.8.1, just downloaded a month ago from the GPC home, 
and compiled with GCC 2.8.1.  Other information available upon request,
though it would help if I knew how to redirect StdOut to a file in DOS -
so far my attempts aren't working.

I'd appreciate any help...
Toby
