Bob -

I understand that Borland 3.1 is somewhat buggy, though it was used 
as the baseline for JNOS 11.X.

I have to ask, are you building via the Borland IDE or are you using 
the makefile and command line compiler? I tried to compile with the 
Borland 4.0 and 4.5 IDE's and got loads of errors, mainly due to 
strong typing errors a'la C++. There's nothing really wrong with weak 
typing a'la C, except that it easier to make a mistake. Using the 
makefile and either the 4.0 or 4.5 command line compiler I was able 
to compile JNOS 1.11c and f with no problems. FWIW, I've also 
successfully compiled JNOS 1.11X with Borland 1.5 and 2.0, but there 
are a few gotchas there...

One other thing about Borland, I think that 3.1 was the last release 
that included an assembler. After that it was an option, so be sure 
to save the object files from assembly language modules.
