I would think the auto link needs fixing, as you suggest. Otherwise it would
not be possible to test with different versions of borland on the same
machine. But there is a problem in that if someone uses the regular borland
toolset against a 5.6 install the autolink would then fail as it would have
bcb56, but the raw toolset would produce bcb. Don't know how to solve that
problem though :-(
