Most certainly you replaced getopt_long with getopt, and I guess the
former wasn't supported by DJGPP but the latter was.

It's great to know that dmidecode can be easily hacked to work in DOS
environments. I will probably not integrate these changes in the
mainline sources though, because I would be unable to maintain
compatibility afterwards (not having a test system).
