The following simple program fails, linked with libbcc2.a and libgrx20.a:

/* START */

#include <grx20.h>
#include <libbcc.h>

main()
{
  int graphdriver=DETECT,graphmode;

  initgraph(&graphdriver,&graphmode,"c:\\tc\\bgi");
}

/* FINISH */

The return error is 1, with GrSetMode() complaining to stderr that it has
received an "unknown graphics mode." Does anyone know what I'm doing
wrong, or will I have to resort to hacking through bcc2grx? 

Alternatively, does anyone know a preferred place for this query? I'd hope
that c.o.m.d was close /enough/; apologies if people think this off-topic.
