If "16 bit PM" means that Blinker creates 16bit DPMI applications,
then you're out of luck. IIRC, the DPMI spec explicitly says that you
cannot have 16bit and 32bit clients nested. I.e. DJGPP can't call
16bit DPMI apps, and they can't call DJGPP apps. Mixing other 16bit
protected mode DOS extenders may easily fail to, for slightly
different yet related reasons.
Given the rarity of 16bit DPMI apps out there (Borland Pascal 7.0 is
about the only somewhat widely used compiler I've seen that makes any,
out of the box), this seldomly is a problem. But if it hits you, it
leaves you completely stuck.
