It is always possible to enlarge the environment space. I have solved 
the problem by creating a gccinit.bat file that sets the path and all 
neccessary environment variables for djgpp. This I run when I want to 
use djgpp. I have also created a batfile called gccend.bat that restores 
the path and removes all environment variables so that I can use the 
space for something else. I use this method for all programs (except 
DOS5) that needs to use environment variables.
