No, I doubt it. At the risk of exposing my ignorance, I doubt that...
Never mind. I'm ignorant. Let's hear from the compiler gurus here. My
guess is that it won't work because I suspect that the formats of the
object and linker output are incompatible with BSD.
If you think it will work, it's a 20 minute job to get it out of MPW and
into MacOS (a little more if you actually want command line options!)
