EXM are a collection of added libraries & tools to aid in the porting of
Unix programs to OS/2. It is used with gcc for compiling.

Ok, I had downloaded the OS/2 binaries rather than the source code from
the website. I have done several unix ports in the past (SSLeay for Watcom
on OS/2, PGP 5.0 for OS/2, ...) so I have everything here needed to do the
compile. Most likely what has happened that whomever did the last OS/2
compile forgot to set an -DOS2 flag for the compile.

I will do a compile on my system here and let you know what the results
