Borland's intrinsic functions are enabled when the option 'Fastest Possible
Code optimization' is used.
This corresponds to the -O2 command line switch.
The alternative optimization, "Smallest Possible Code', which corresponds to
the -O1 switch, doesn't set intrinsic on.

My guess is that the jamtools for Borland uses -O1 instead of -O2.
The problem is that when you build the test by hand you don't know that you
must use -O1 instead of -O2.
I think it is better to use the pragma to turn it off than to require users
to use -O1.
