You also need the file gpp*b.zip, which is the actual C++ compiler. However,
this is only necessary if you want to compile the `setup' utility. If not,
use the `-k' option to `make' and ignore the error messages.

Yes.

Using the `-l' option when linking automatically assumes "libWHATEVER.a".

Incidentally, Allegro 3.0 has now been released. You may want to consider
getting it before you get too much farther along. If I recall correctly, the
setup program for it is written in plain C, which will keep you from having
to get C++.
