Ok. Checked up on it now with 1.31 which is what I already had
installed. Essentially, "make" is a no-go on win32s, most likely due to
upper/lowercase issues, whereas the compiler and linker seems to work.
Some of the sample programs compiled on W95 do work OK, others die due
to missing comctr32.dll and the like, i.e. from trying to use
something that simply isn't there in win32s. So it's no good as a
development platform, but it should be quite possible to cross-develop
from win95.

Um. *Schnitker*. I thought it looked wrong...
