The MSDOS port doesn't support async subprocesses, and thus GUD
doesn't work in that port.  But it does no harm to mention the MSDOS
port in the ones that need this special treatment (for the unprobable
case that someone will add subprocesses support to it in the future),
so my vote is for the second variant of the above two clauses.
