Yup - absolutely reasonable to charge for labour and non-labour costs to provide GPL software and binaries to users (details spelled out in the GPL license).
Absolutely. You can charge thousands for support and software distribution. You can paywall source and dev tool access and limit it to people who have purchased your product. Question is, do they still provide access to a source repository or source package archive? Do they even provide the source code offer (in writing) with the application? If they do none of these things, they're not fulfilling their obligations.
However, that's not germane to the original issue. DOSBox Turbo is a patched version of an unknown release of DOSBox SVN. The nature of the patches and exact revision it's based off of is not known, therefore the maintainer of DOSBox Turbo or a third party willing and able to offer assistance will have to be contacted. I'm not aware of any such person on the forum, therefore I suggest being in touch with fishstix via the address listed on Google Play.
As for Retroarch, it might stay close enough to mainline SVN for the DOSBox devs to chime in. I recommend providing some information on the version of RetroArch you're running, the version of DOSBox core installed (if you can find it), and the platform you're running Retroarch on as a first step. As a first step in troubleshooting, it's always a good idea to provide enough information for someone to replicate the exact state your system is in.
