What is your goal:

   a) Compile the speex codec using C++ Builder?
   b) Use the speex codec compiled elsewhere in a project
      compiled with C++ Builder?

If its the second then you probably need to ask on a C++
Builder specific mailing list or forum.

If its the former then you can probably forget it. I am the
author of another audio library that is developed mainly on
Linux and I currently support the MinGW, Cygwin and MSVC
compilers. Thats three compilers I need to support for a
OS (windows) that I don't personally have an interest in.
Supporting yet another compiler for windows is something
that I decided against, especially so because in the case
of Builder C++, it seems to be a C++ compiler that does not
have a C mode. Ie it produces error and warnig messages on
code that is valid C but not valid C++.

Obviously this is Jean-Marc's decision and I'm not telling
him not to support this compiler. I am however pointing 
out that this compiler is yet more work for very little
payoff. In the case of my project, the proponent of C++
Builder sent me a huge, monsterously ugly and totally
unmaintainable patch to add C++ Builder support. Needless
to say, that patch was *not* applied.
