Perhaps I was unclear, either that or I'm confused.  MacOS.p is just:

unit MacOS;


uses MacTypes,MacMemory,Sound,Controls,and,everything,under,the,sun;


So if I understand correctly, with GPC which does not have Uses 
Propagation, "uses MacOS" either with or without the command line 
would never do anything, correct?
