I downloaded some games from the net (and also made a very basic one of my
own) using djgpp and allegro.  The games had a makefile that I attempted to
use to build the game, but to no avail.  It always gives me an error, such
as "undefined reference to " and many different functions that allegro uses.
When I try to go through Rhide to make these games and in options-libraries,
I type allegro and check the box, it gives me the error saying
Error 1:  c:\djgpp\bin\ld.exe : cannot find -lallegro
Error 2: ld returned 1 exit status
I don't understand why I'm too incompetent to compile SOMEBODY ELSE'S
program, and then not even my simple allegro program.  The program, btw, is
the raycaster from the old sizehack competition (but I've tried others and I
get the same result).  If anybody knows why I'm getting this error, please
reply and notify me why.
