Subject: GCC environment discussion getting out of hand

Hey guys, while I agree with Chris, Eric, at al. that the environment is
the way to communicate these parameters, I sympathize with the MS-DOS
folks' desire to "simplify" the configuration (ie, do it the way other
DOS programs usually do).  I hope they won't go off and create a patched
version of DJGPP to satisfy that desire, though, because once that happens
the two "cultures" may start to diverge and it will be harder to share
programs and techniques.  Which is what DJGPP is all about, right?
   Can't we cool out a little bit?  (This is my *last* message on .CFG.)
