I downloaded Quarterdeck's X libraries and a fairly minimal DJGPP
setup, compiled, stripped, and aout2exe'd the muncher demo, and
*viola*, it runs!  :-)
    However, when you close it from by selecting close after clicking
on the window number (This is DV/X's own window manager, for those who
are familiar with Open Look or Motif), it barfs into a DOS window to
report an "XIO: Fatal IO error, probably ... KillClient".  Tomorrow I
shall poke around to see if I can figure out what's what with this,
but I do want to report that DV/X + DJGPP seems to be feasible, and to
ask if anybody else out there is actually working with both DJGPP and
    In particular, I'd love to have a version of DEmacs to run under
DV/X---even if I have to do it myself.  (DEmacs is GO32 1.05, I
haven't tried to use GO32 1.08 as DEmacs uses a patched version of
GO32.)  Anybody else working on this?
