Don't feel that it's on your head to keep them working.  The project's
attitude towards port-specific files has always been that it's the
responsibility of the users of that port to keep 'em working.  If there
are no users of a port, it will suffer bit-rot, and eventually we'll
decide to remove it.  But I think it's a bit early to declare that there
are no users of the MSVC or Borland ports.
