Pre-built Allegro libraries for DJGPP GCC 4.9, 5.x (Developers)

I managed to compile the Allegro Game Library (and its official addons) with a DJGPP cross-compiler, available from here.

For DJGPP GCC 4.9:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/4iuhtnvi61f7pn3/allegro-dev-djgpp-gcc-4.9.2.tar.bz2

DJGPP GCC 5.x:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/7y15pzvdwpm36jm/allegro-dev-djgpp-gcc-5.4.0.tar.bz2

These packages include:

-Allegro 4.2.3.1 (latest with DOS support)
-logg 2.9 (OGG Vorbis loading addon)
-loadpng 1.5 (PNG image support)
-jpgalleg 2.6 (JPG/JPEG image support)
-libogg 1.3.2
-libvorbis 1.3.5 (vorbis, vorbisfile and vorbisenc)
-libpng 1.2.56
-zlib 1.2.8

Plus the 4.9 file has some extras:

-AllegroPNG 1.3 (similar to loadpng, but stand-alone, independent from libpng and zlib)
-AllegroMP3 2.0.4 (untested, but compilation was easy)

I don't know if the 4.9 libraries also work on 5, or vice-versa, but I compiled one for each version anyway.

Programs using these libs seem to work fine on DOSBox and other low-level emus.
Tested in C mode with gcc. g++ in 5.4 gave me "redefinition" errors about a "fix" class, which I don't know how to solve yet.

Thanks, I personally don't use bloatlegro but it may be handy for recompiling some older projects...

Documentation about how you compiled these would be just as valuable. I'm particularly interested. Also, you could Eli & DJ to host these.

I second that!
I'm a big fan of the idea behind https://reproducible-builds.org/. Several month ago I started to write a (very) short article regarding DJGPP for BTTR Software, but how life goes, I didn't finish it yet. ;-)
