If the BCB IDE is free as in all sorts of beverages, then I can certainly 
build the Sword lib using that, and then build the other libraries (which 
are wxWidgets and an add-on to it) with bcc (or BCB) also. All I need is the 
library, since I want to link my own front-end to it. I will look around for 
C Builder 6 and see what I come up with. Thanks for the lead!!
