BTW, RAR 5.00 final has been released (though the new improvements are a separate incompatible format), but not for DOS.

Which exact version of unrar.exe do you have? I tested "3.80" (2008 DJGPP build) yesterday in FreeDOS with blocek.rar, it works.

I did try (again) to compile latest UnRAR (5.0.11) with DJGPP, but it bombs out on wchar_t stuff (wcscmp, etc), so I don't know what's going on. I'm not familiar with C++ enough to fix it. Our best bet overall is probably to find an old copy of unrar-3.93 sources and build that (since last RAR shareware for DOS [EMX] is 3.93). Actually, I already found 3.93 sources but haven't looked closely. Though it does still have (unlike latest 5.0.11, which only has generic *nix makefile). A quick diff of rr's 3.8.0 and 3.9.3 should show what's changed.
