Cool beans! Now I just built it on my other XP machine "--with-system-
malloc" (although maybe I should've rebooted with a liveCD and tried
DOSEMU ... bah, next time maybe) with GCC 4.4.0, BinUtils 2.19, DJGPP
2.04 beta, and I used -Os -mtune=3Di686. It's got everything (except *.o
and redundant .EXEs):  binaries, sources, docs, changelogs (16
MB!), .tex / .pdf, "etc", etc.  ;-)     In other words, 32 MB packed
with "7za a -mx5" (medium compression) resulting in 170 MB unpacked
(or more on FAT w/ big clusters, ugh). Brief tests show it works fine
on Vista, too. (I haven't used it too much lately, always forget, but
when you need "align-regexp", it's very very useful. And gomoku still
kicks my rump. Doctor is fairly braindead, though. I also discovered
that not all GNU Emacs ports have such a pretty colorful tetris! Ah,
dumb terminals, gotta hate 'em.)

"Your file has been saved and can now be downloaded 10 times. It will

"1. Download Link:	Click here to download file

P.S. For laughs, I locally tried stripping all the junk out
(extra .elc, docs, changelogs, parts of etc, sources) and UPXing
the .EXEs. Even then, the smallest I get with "7za a -mx5" is 14 MB.
Now looking at it, I see even more fluff that isn't needed (.png,
NEWS.*, gnus ... which only you probably understand how to get
working, a bunch of README files, ...). In other words, 60 MB
installed, and even then, I'm not entirely sure I didn't strip
something that looked unimportant but might be (rarely) needed. So, in
theory, if I (or somebody) was going to strip / split up everything
into separate packages, it'd need testing to make sure it didn't break
anything. Also need to test if building on LFN (or SFN) affects the
other. And I still say Gzip sources and/or binary could be included,
it's very small compared to what it saves (auto-compression-mode), and
that's only if it needs "gzip -9" to repack after unpacking (I forget,
does it??). It should probably be made to only unpack a temporary copy
(or to temporary dir). Otherwise, just use minigzip found in official
zlib-1.2.3/contrib/ since it's equally easy to build and works. (I
guess the Allegro Common Lisp is beyond anybody these days.
Oh well, I still like that idea too, but it does need converting to
eLisp *and* a .gz wrapper handler.)

P.P.S. Still no cp853 support, but since I'm literally 100% positively
the only person in the entire freakin' world who cares, I guess it's
no biggie.   :-))
