If you just install Code::Blocks (or Dev-C++) and use the package

projects that use different libraries from different devpaks.
Maybe you're looking for devpaks.
Basically they are binary archives of libraries to be used in Dev-C++ or
However the files are tar.bz2 files, so if you rename the extension to
.tar.bz2 or .tbz2 you can just extract them (or open them e.g. with WinRar).
Quite some devpaks can be found at http://www.devpaks.org/
Wow those are very interesting. I'm a little afraid of them because
they don't offer dependency linking among devpaks [maybe unnecessary?]
and they aren't hosted at a single site, and they are compiled by
various different versions of gcc...are any of those significant
problems, anyone think? Just wondering.
But you are right, the dependancies are not always managed properly and
when installing a devpak you sometimes may need to grab another one to
meet its dependancies.
On the other hand, there are some great libraries that I didn't find
devpaks for, so I do build my own from time to time.
In fact I have quite a library of Devpaks now that I compiled with
MinGW 4.4.0, maybe I should publish them on a site.
