Disclaimer: I'm guessing!
The compiler thinks that you are trying to compile a program (as opposed to a library or DLL or somehting) and is looking for your main.
(H:\BC52\LIB\C0X32.OBJ contains that startup code that sets up argc and argv and then calls int main(int argc, char ** argv))

So,
a: Tell your compiler not to expect a main (option /C on command line for Compile only, no linking)
b: make sure your main is recognised. As far as I know, main has to be one of

int main()
int main(int argc, char ** argc)
int main(int argc, char ** argc, char ** envp)
(envp gives you the environment variables, NOT SUPPORTED EVERYWHERE!)
