GCC and Emacs are huge codes developed on Unix that run with DJGPP. 

One of the nice things about DJGPP is that you can just copy,
recompile, and run, most single CPU, non-network, Unix code written in
Ada, C, Fortran, or GCC dialects of other languages, on your desktop,
given enough memory and/or swap space. 

Now, if you use a lot of third party or application libraries on Unix
for which you don't have the source code, or it's not in Ada, C,
Fortran, or GCC dialects of other languages, it sure won't move
easily.
