    Get the source and compile it in your compiler of choice.

    I guess it's possible, but on the other hands I had some problems with linking ddraw.lib in a Borland compiler... It may or may not work. The best way to find out is if you try it yourself on the compilers you use.

    thats the point you are writhe but if they are written for a diffrent os you have no choice it like putting a mustang engine in to a aircraft and say both are engines i dont have to know how diffrent they are or how diffrent they work.
