I tried to create bindings for Allegro under Linux some time ago, but I
didn't succeed. If I remember well, the problem was related to the C
macros used by Allegro (END_OF_MAIN).

I used the Delphi bindings ( http://www.caladon.de/allegro/ ) as a base,
because h2pas was not able to do it automatically (crashes) and
converting directly from the .h seemed quite difficult for me.

I didn't attempt a new try with the last version of Free Pascal though.
