Where did you get your download from.  You should have a demo directory also which includes a project file or makefile for each port.  RTFM: http://www.freertos.org/a00017.html

1) Install Watcom tools
2) Download FreeRTOS zip file and unzip.
3) In the Watom IDE, open the project file that is in the FreeRTOS/Demo/PC directory.
4) Compile.
5) Set NO87=1 in as an environment variable.
6) Run.

This information is all in the documentation.

When you install OW, you get the option to install the DOS tools as well as the win32 tools.  As you are creating a DOS exe you need to check the box to ensure the DOS tools.  Did you do this?  As the library is not found I think you did not install the DOS files.
