it's written to stderr (a little difficult to redirect on MSDOS).  possibly
it should be altered to make stderr write to a file (that would be at least
as portable, and a lot more useful).

the ifdef's need to be revised (as is, there's a number of different things
tied to DOSPATH).

I recommend using (sparingly) three classes of ifdef's:

        + compiler (please don't use the predefined symbols - make a derived
          name so they can all adhere to the same convention)

        + platform

        + libraries
