There's a freeware (shareware?) port of Unix GCC called DJGPP for DOS that
compiles 32-bit, but there might be drawbacks, such as: 1) I don't know if
it handles long file names, and 2) You'll have to get wsock32.lib from
somewhere to link it with.  Other than that, it seems to work fine, albeit
it's a little confusing to get the hang of it.  

- Cheers!
