If I remember correctly, gprof takes name of your executable as a parameter. 
gmon.out is searched by default and you need not specify it on gprof's 
commandline. Correct commandline is:

gprof <yourprogramname.exe>

If you have djgpp 2.01, then exe should work, in 2.00 you would have to use
plain coff file as parameter.

But I cannot prove that I'm right, because I'm sitting 
at school with no access to any djgpp installation.

Hope it helps
