To my knowledge, not very much likes compiling under Dev-C++ for Windows -- 
I tried SDL_net.  Cmd obviously won't run ./configure, and using cygwin's 
sh requires some modification of PATH to point at the Dev-C++ libraries, 
compilers.  Even then, it looks like the resulting makefile has some path 
issues, as the Dev-C++ gcc uses Windows-centric (Drive:\Directory) paths 
that ./configure definitely does not create.

Cross-compiling under Cygwin also doesn't seem to want to work -- it seems 
to die in if.h on an undefined caddr_t.

Unless I'm missing something, Dev-C++ also doesn't like opening the Visual 
Studio project file, so no luck there.  Around this point, I gave up and 
downloaded the binaries.  If someone _did_ get something like this to work, 
I'd also be interested in hearing the answer.
