I'd be very surprised if you could. Why not use gcc?

Probably using wine. The executables will only run in wine too.

The problem is that borland c is old even for windows, to the point where it's non-standard c (ie, it's older than the current standard). Unless we're talking about c++ builder.

Version 3.0 works in dosbox. Windows-based versions obviously need Windows, but it can be inside QEMU or VMware. Wine may work, but I wouldn't count on it.
