I kinda got stumbled into djgpp a while back. Problem with using go32 is
that djgpp v2.0 doesn't use go32 anymore (at least that is what I
understand from the faq) and two, go32 only works for COFF binary format.
What we need is 1) a go32 that works on ELF and 2) shared libraries that
works on DOS.

I think it should work, at least for the "Hello world" program... :)
