Well, Ive been playign with the windows port.

First problem is that gcc under Win95 expects 8.3 filenames because its
basicly a DOS interface port of gcc (runs in a DSO box).

This means, with our current file names, we will NEVER compile
under gcc.

Suggestions?  I coudl change the names but upgrading is gonna be a
pain. It woudl be better is we went to 8.3 for all cold source....
