I am only used to borland''s commandline compiling.

The way to do is
1) pragmas - add the following at the start of the code
#pragma comment(lib, "PATH/LIBRARY")
#pragma comment(lib, more libraries)

Path = directory of library.

2) use -LPATH -lLibrary

Your glaux.lib is in coff format, not omf format. Run coff2omf.exe on it, or find a borland-compatible glaux.lib on the internet.
