You will need to find and use a DOSBOX type program. [Dar]wine requires the use of X11 and may in the future support the native Aqua interface.
I am assuming that you are not trying to run Microsoft Visual C++/C# (MSVC) compilers as well. These do require that the Windows environment be present and running, although they can be run from a Command Prompt window in some cases.

>I'm interested in running some command-line binaries, specifically the Microsoft compilers and linkers, on Mac OS X. WINE (more specifically Darwine) would seem to be a step in the right direction. It seems to me that since these kinds of programs have limited interaction with the operating system, they stand a good chance of running well within WINE. However, WINE seems to be oriented more toward GUI stuff, and wants to launch some kind of X-Windows session. Can I make this dependency go away somehow?
