I think that I screwed up also when explaining my problem. ;-)
I have setup Cygwin and it is working very fine, thanks god
What I want was :
How do I compile a Win32 executable that doesn't use Cygwin?
The -mno-cygwin flag to gcc makes gcc link against standard Microsoft DLLs
instead of Cygwin. This is desirable for native Windows programs that don't
need a UNIX emulation layer.

But as my programs are design to run under DOS, I think that it's not
possible with Cygwin and that I should use DJGPP.
Does it sound right ???
