Not any more. I don't even think that the release of FreeDOS 1.0 [1] will
change this. Also, the last DJGPP update of GNU gettext by volunteers was
in 2002.

But each time I say in public that DJGPP is dying or dead, I get flamed
by Eli Zaretski :-)

So, if we all decide to drop support for DJGPP from gnulib, I'm with you.
