I've trying to add support for compiling wx programs by OpenWatcom from within C::B without luck.

Most flags of OW in C::B doesn't works, however, currently it is using a "wrapper" for the compiler and linker.
The problem is that some flags, like linking libs, is something like "lib somelib.lib" "lib anotherlib.lib" and so on, that, at least with the current wrapper being used. And that can't be done with the current compiler handling of flags.

However, OW comes not only with the compiler and linker, it comes with multiple wrappers for them, including a cl wrapper, a gcc wrapper, etc.
For the sake of easyness, we could use: the gcc wrapper, or the compiler and linker directly.

When using them directly, I think the linker needs some kind of response file, which C::B would have to generate.

Any OW guru can enlighten us?
