GPC on Cygwin having a problem compiling using crt

So I seem to have gotten past the Intr() procedure problem. Turns out that the TechnoJock's Turbo Toolkit files that came with this project were not complete. I downloaded the full distribution of files, compiled them to .tpu unit files using TP and TASM, and now I have unit files to play with. I have tried recompiling in the Dev+GNU Pascal IDE, but am not quite sure how to get the IDE to find these files. I put the .tpu files in the same directory as the project's .pas files, but they didn't get recognized. I created a units directory in the project directory and added a --unit-path="units" option in the Extra Compiler Options field for the Project/Project options dialog. No luck. Did I need to put all the supporting .pas and .asm files into the directory with the .tpu files? Any pointers on this? I believe I am very close to having this problem fixed.

The Intr routine works only on DJGPP (DOS-32). This IDE is based on
Mingw. Unless you can find a portable way to do what you want to do with
Intr, I think you are well and truly stuck there.
