Borland uses OMF and Cygwin uses PE-COFF, so unless you can convert OMF to
COFF, there's not a chance (didn't borland supply a tool for this?). Even
if you could convert the format, the references to runtime within these 
objects will be wrong and it just won't work correctly. However, if the
Borland object files were compiled statically, it may work.
