There's a good chance there is such an option.  As I said, I've 
added the casts for now, but will be forcing BCB to use C later.  I 
felt the same about the casts, but Michael didn't seem entirely 
receptive, so I dropped the subject altogether. :)

The vorbis tarball came with getopt, which seems to be straight 
from GNU.  But the compiler has some odd issue with it which I 
haven't figured out...yet.  I've just starting wondering if mixing C and 
C++ might be the very problem.
