I'm guessing that the error messages appear when you are trying to
_compile_ these programs, not to _run_ them, right?  Please try to
be more accurate when reporting problems, as it is impossible to 
provide efficient help based on vague reports.

If you have undefined references while compiling programs, it usually
means you forgot to tell the compiler to look in some library that by
default is not searched.  `GrLine' is from the GRX library; you need
to download and install the GRX package, and you need to append
-lgrx20 to the link command line.

See section 8.7 of the DJGPP FAQ list (v2/faq211b.zip from the same
place you get DJGPP) for more about this issue.

If there are errors other than ``undefined reference'', please post
here the exact text of the message(s), and describe what you were
trying to do when those errors happened.
