I'm afraid that it doesn't... This relies on having a working dyn.load
and as far as I remember, the support for that in the latest version
that will run under win3.x was too sketchy to support survival4. The
recent (mingw32) port of 0.61.1 does not run with win32s, but Guido
Masarotto (sp?) is currently testing whether RSXNT is a viable
alternative.

I presume that more than simple Kaplan-Meier plots and logrank tests
are required? I have interpreted code for those which runs with the
available binaries.

Actually, none of the versions have run too well with win32s. There
has been trouble with printing graphics etc. Are you sure that you
don't just want to upgrade?
