It is not a question.  Use the Bash "what" script on any DJGPP compiled program,
and see.  "what" is an old Unix/SCCS tool used for software version
control.  I don't think SCCS is distributed with any *nix these days (I
could be wrong).  In the old days it was a good way to query a compiled
program to find the version numbers of its various modules.
