Sorry, had some problems with a typo:

rm -r SDL-0.6e
tar zcvf SDL-0.6e.tar.gz SDL-0.6e


It's back up there, try now.

That's really odd.  Try building the warp example in SDL/examples/warp/
and look at the Makefile to see how the options for the different 
platforms work.  I haven't had any trouble at all, as long as I remember
to link -lmingw32 before -lSDL on the link line.

Anyway, I'll send instructions on using Borland C++ 5.0 with the SDL
DLL files.

See ya!
