Sorry, I was abscent a couple of days so I could not respond to this.
As Eli already pointed out __MSDOS__ is used by the DJGPP port.  If
this is an incoveniece may be a different macro can be used, like
__DJGPP__ or what ever may see to you as appropriate.
As long as the existing MSDOS/DJGPP support is still part of the make
code I will continue providing ports for the DJGPP community.  If
I encounter some DJGPP specific issue I will try to provide a
port to fix it.
