(Now, how did I know that would be the response <g>?)

Well, if I'd ported anything much.  Most things I've built have either already
had a DJGPP configuration or I've just used the standard Unix one and copied
things by hand.

The syntax of DJGPP.ENV is fairly simple, yes, I just don't remember it (the
same as I don't remember all the weird things in makefiles - my makefiles
tend to be as simple as possible so that they'll work with almost any version
of make).  I look at DJGPP.ENV so seldom that it doesn't stick in my memory.
I've never even looked at lib/specs - what does it do?
