Yes. I have written my own version of PCmaker in C++Builder and I generate
makefiles which have the correct flags for debugging into the DLLs. As
mentioned earlier in the week, I'm no longer supporting my C++Builder web
pages so have removed my DLLbuilder software. However, 

    -Ve -Vx -a8 -k -c -b- -tWM -tWD -tWR -w- -P -Od -r- -v -vi- -y -5


the above flags are the ones I use - look at the -v -O options in the BCB
help files for more info.
