I'm no whiz myself, but the only way to learn is try, I suppose, or
read a billion books and sources. Though it's not easy, and there just
aren't enough helpful mentors.

I built 9.22 with stock DJGPP + CWSDPMI only just to be safe with
licensing. You can find it on iBiblio. Though it bundles CWSDSTUB in
itself to ease use, but you can remove that if you want to save a few

I did manage to cross-compile it, but native DJGPP just didn't seem to
like it, and I got too frustrated to keep trying ad nauseum. (I'm
pretty sure they only cross-compile too, so they don't care about
native builds.)

So I never got back to that, hence iBiblio only has 3.07. But I can
email or upload it for you if you want. It works fine. EDIT: Never
mind, just uploaded to iBiblio, check here:
