Err... djdev*.zip (libc and DJGPP specific programs) compiles in
FreeDOS. Many (all ported except there might name clashes with only
8.3 file names, I suppose) GNU programs compile in MS-DOZE. If they
compile or work with MS-DOZE and not FreeDOS, it's a bug in FreeDOS.

Granted Debian has many many packages not originating from GNU,
perhaps you mean them?
