It works fine for me (but I don't have FreeDOS installed and didn't
try to build on FreeDOS).

Feel free to do that, but personally, I think this is a waste of
energy.  From my POV, the DJGPP build of Emacs is in maintenance mode:
no new features specific to that build are or should be considered.

That's pretty much the point: I am suggesting removing features specific to the build (in this case, the build system) and letting the normal build system take the strain instead.
