I think I'm trying it just for fun.  Actually I was angry because my
Allegro.pas wrapper doesn't work (well, version 4.4 almost do but version 5
only does on "debug" mode), so I was wondering to write an actual port of
the library instead of a wrapper.  I did wrote a simple DOS game library in C
a lot of years ago so I think it's a good place to start with, and also
because I liked DOS a lot and Allegro dropped out it some time ago.  Also I
think that Pascal deserves its own "game library" instead of use those "C style"
ones as SDL and Allegro.

I think I'll try FreeDOS in a VM.  I hope I can remember how to mount
a FAT32 image
on Linux...
