Apparently, you are having problems with the GALib library. I have never
tried the BORLAND C++ 5.02, so I do not know how to solve them.

I personally use Microsoft's VISUAL C++ v5.0 compiler.

First of all, make sure you can compile and run one of the GALIB examples
in the examples directory.

Then, the onemax.cpp file generated by EASEA v0.3 should compile correctly.
Please, contact me again if you have problems at this stage.
