Which version of DJGPP? Which version of allegro: 4.03 or 4.20?
Everything compiles for 4.03, but little does for 4.20...

My experience is that Allegro, after the build, places the
resulting files, i.e., libraries and includes, correctly into DJGPP.
You may want to read allegro\docs\build\djgpp.txt
Basically, unzip, with directories, Allegro into d:\djgpp
(Allegro files will then be in d:\djgpp\allegro)
Winzip should do this fine.
If you are doing this from DOS, I recommend using a .tar.gz version
of Allegro instead of a .zip. You'll need Henrik Haftmann's DOSLFN
gzip -d allegro-4.0.3.tar.gz
djtar -xvf allegro-4.0.3.tar
Then do these:

My personal experience with graphics libraries for DOS is that, at
most, half the Allegro ex*.exe examples work for my video card.
Almost none of the GRX demo's work and all DEPUI demo's work.
Other people seem to have much better luck with Allegro than I.
Allegro never seems to like my choice of video cards.
