I forgot to add, DJGPP doesn't appear to build "out of the box", so I am 
not sure how I would rebuild the texinfo files of every package.  not 
even the configure scripts work right in BASH.  I don't know what DJ did 
to build these binaries, but he did something really special and 
seemingly undocumented.  I can't get any builds to work without 
generating errors.
DJGPP in itself is a huge undertaking, and I am very thankful for the 
port effort though.

I can compile stuff if it's using standard libraries, but not with gmp. 
  it can't find gmp.h and it's in the v2gnu/include directory.


I installed "the whole thing".  unzipped the packages into their proper 
directories, source and all.
