Yeah, very long ago.  A quick search of our archives shows that the number
of mentions of Borland pretty much fell off a cliff after 2009 (excluding
the repeated conversations about dropping support, that is).  I found one
report suggesting that it was already broken in 2012:

It seems pretty safe to say that nobody's using this build method
anymore.  As best I can tell from perusing the archives, the reason
we used to expend a lot of sweat on it was that there was a freely
available version of Borland C and none of MSVC.  But that stopped
being true a long time ago, so there's not much reason to concern
ourselves with it anymore.
