    There is a link to a Dev-C++ package on the bloodshed site. I think under the libraries section.
    I really like using SDL vs DirectX. It's much easier. Although it doesn't have built in networking or text there are many additional libraries that make it a very well rounded API. It uses OpenGL for its 3D rendering but has it's own 2D graphics which is very easy to use. I haven't used Allegro but I do recommend SDL to everyone I know. It may not be quite as powerful as DirectX but the learning curve is much lower.
