Sorry, can't really help you there -- I plan to build 1.0.2 for DOS
and Windows but don't have GCC or DJHCC or Borland. I simply don't
have the time and we only have one PC in the building that I can use
and no-one else who knows about it (hardly). So your efforts are
greatly welcomed.

I had the same problem. My suspicion is that test_grammar needs
several hunderds of kbytes to parse properly because it's a single
block containing many hundreds of statements. Split it up in a few
submodules and you might be more successful. (Or dou you get other
errors? Then tell me what they are.)
