I have to say that I never heard of lcc-win32 before this mail :-)
And from what I see at it is a C

anyway, it's not supported by Bakefile and thus my bakefiles cannot be used
create makefiles for lcc-win32; you can contact bakefile authors to ask

anyway, there various free C++ compilers available on internet (like borland
c++ free command line tools, digital mars...).
