    I've already got all this done.  I'll send a patch for this first.

    Yeah, you're telling me :)  There's a vctobpr utility included in BCB5 which will 
convert the
dsp file to a bpr file.  It does most of the work, but you can only select one 
(debug/release/release inline) from each project, so you have to convert each one 
manually, and
select one configuration.  There are also some changes needed to some headers, since 
BCB defines
things like uid_t, gid_t, and has some different syntax for conditional defines.  I'll 
put these
changes in a second patch, since they have a chance of affecting other builds.

    Yeah, once I get it going, no prob.  I'll also see if I can whip up a shell script 
converting the dsp & dsw files and building the makefiles from them.  This will 
probably take a
while (since it's a pain, and rather low priority), so don't hold your breath on it
