Thanks for the sync, I've picked up the latest code today. However, I'm
hitting another issue now. Pasting the build output quickly before I work on

kmk[4]: Leaving directory

kmk: *** [pass_libraries_before] Error 2

Line 473 of the file
shows the following:

static char bios_cvs_version_string[] = "VirtualBox " "2.0.51_OSE";

I think the bcc compiler does not know how to concatenate these 2 strings
into one. I have also verified this with a small test prog and tried
compiling it with bcc, resulting in a failure with the same error msg and
err code 66.
