Hi Andre,
i've included makefiles for the free compilers cygwin/gcc and Borland C++
5.5 with my external packages. (see
Especially with Borland C++ you should have a look how to do it as the
library format is not binary compatible to the one MS uses.
There's some loss of speed with these compilers, however.

I did not try to recompile PD with one of these compilers (only adapted the
header files m_pd.h and m_imp.h), but i tend to think that there have to be
some slight changes to the code for that.
