Have a look at the comp.languages.c FAQ, available as

http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/faq/usenet/C-faq/faq/faq.html

Section 18.3 mentions some free and cheap C compilers, including DJGPP
(of course!), something called PCC and several others.  It also has
pointers to the comp.compilers FAQ which apparently discusses this
in more detail.

There are also several "TinyC" compilers, which implement a subset of
K&R C (often without things like structs), and there is also a language
"C--" which is ideal for writing small utilities and TSRs, but has a 
somewhat idiosyncratic syntax (it's C-like, but not identical).
