There are other two solutions: 
a)create a package for Borland C++ Builder!
b)make win32.c free of any SDKs. (is that so difficult? Since I don't have any SDKs installed and I only have 
that stupid INVALID_SET_FILE_POINTER error, you may just define it.. OR AT LEAST TELL ME ITS VALUE...)

my specs:
Windows 98
Visual Studio 6 Service Pack 5
