I have ever built it with BCB. And the console compiler of BCB
is the same as BCC, so I think it should be compiled with BCC too.
The point is the import library of msvcrt.dll.
Make a import library of an exist DLL is not so hard, but an extra task.

As to MinGW, I must tell the truth that I have not built Bjam with it yet.
Because of rare use, I have uninstall it already.
But I have ever built some programs with it before.
Most APIs of msvct.dll are available. In fact, MinGW project just made a
import library.
So I guess '_ltoa' is available .

Anyway, I have replaced it with 'sprinf' since it isn't compiled with

Thanks for tell me this.
