Is that true?

There is no trick for Win95 in DeleGate.  I managed to port it to
the Win32 platform two years ago making some compatible functions
to emulate Unix in rary/windows.c.  Because DeleGate has been developed
on Unix assuming fork() system call is available, which enables somewhat
compiled startup environment can be inherited to child process, 
DeleGate suffers from a disadvantage on platforms like Win32 where
fork() is not available and startup environment must be initialized
in each spawned children.  So it sound odd for me to hear its
performance is good...

I've never tried with VC6 but "make-vc5.bat" at the top directory
works at least with VC5 without problem...
