Ok.  I downloaded the Native Oberon source
files from:

Then I extracted the compiler files under
Plugin Oberon, recompiled and tested them.
Now I've got DELEGATES under Plugin Oberon.
So I guess it's back to the drawing board
on my XML port. *LOL* I'll redo this as
I have time.

That reminds me, it seems that we need a
better way to keep source synched across
builds.  At the very least if the compiler
files were kept in a seperate Zip archive
and there was a weblink saying "click here
for the latest Intel compiler"?  Or perhaps
something more sophisticated that updated
each system source file (Plugin, Native,
Linux)?  I don't know.  There's got to
be a better way than trial and error.
