Personally, I wouldn't mind a set of OS/2 binaries :-). Unless
recompiling GPC for OS/2 is simply a matter of running the make file
through GNU Make. EMX, BTW, is one of the OS/2 GCC ports. It can also
run under 32-bit extended DOS (using the VCPI standard by default 'tho),
so if you recompile it for OS/2 you are also making a version for DOS as
well. Convienent, 'eh?

I'd probably move away from the Borland "standard" if a powerful
Extended Pascal or Object Pascal compiler was readily available to me.
Mainly because Borland is not a "real standard". 'Tho maybe it should be
because a lot of people seem to use it.

What's missing still?
