There was a method noted here in the last couple of weeks on how to
generate MS compatible .dlls using Gnu-Win32, that had been tested. You
might want to take a look at the archives for the information.
In terms of Borland C, it has always been able to understand the MS
.dll. So, if you generate a .dll that MSVC can understand, then Borland C
can probably understand it as well.

Afaik, you can not generate .lib files easily via Gnu-Win32. As far as
linking is concerned, I believe that Borland/Win32 only recognizes the MS
and Borland type .lib files. You would probably be best served by generating
an MS compatible .dll to use with Borland.
I hope this helps.
