Out of curiosity - is this limitation related to different object library
format used/supported by GCC and VC, or yet something else? If it's just
the format, there might be tools to translate from one format to another
(although there might be limitations, of course), or it _might_ be
possible (with some manual tweaking - for sure not easy) to use a linker
supporting both formats (I'd expect OpenWatcom Linker to be able to do
