I don't mix libraries version to avoid a possible unknown behaviour (usually, errors).
But I'm not sure if you can do that.

Anyway, there is a way to compile only sdlmain. Go to libsdl source code, look for src/main/win32 and there is a file, SDL_win32_main.c.
Now, you only have to compile it with Borland C but only to get the object code (do not link it). And finally, you will have a sdl_main.obj :)

On the other hand, did you mean that you can use SDL.dll with Borland compiler without to recompile the whole library with Borland? I'm very interested on that success, could you explain me that? 
Thanks and good luck!
