Both support. I have tested only WinXP Pro.

However I have seen one difference between LFN support of for example 
Win95 and WinXP: if the length exceeds maximum permitted for Windows, then
under Win95 there is no error message (name is either truncated ... or there
is buffer overrun - I haven't studied more detailed). On WinXP I'm getting 
error message. But this difference is not DJGPP specific, as I'm getting the
same for MINGW. Maybe we need some workaround for it.
