The previous Borland support comprised Makefiles generated with a 
patched version of tmake. I believe those patches have since been 
applied to TT's version of tmake. The new build system relys on a 
working tmake or qmake for any platform. I certainly have never tested 
the ability to build with Borland as I don't have that compiler.
