[sword-devel] Building libsword in Windows

I hope I don't sound like a broken record with my questions about libsword 
under Windows, but I'm still having problems getting my whole chain of 
libraries to build under MSW. I just ran into a great realization the other 
day, however, when I remembered that BibleCS/Sword builds under BCB under 
Windows and the rest of my required libraries compile under Borland's 
free(beer) compiler, or so they claim. However, then the question arose, 
when I went to lib/bcppmake in the sword directory as to whether Sword will 
build with Borland's command-line tools or whether there is only support for 
the BCB IDE. Is there any guidance abounding as to that process? Might it be 
possible to use BCB to generate a makefile.bcc or some other magical file 
that command-line tools could use to build the library? Or is the IDE also 
available free (beer) for compiling the libsword? Thanks in advance!
