Dev-C++ includes gl.h and glu.h, I believe. Any extra (like GLUT or the ilk) will need to be downloaded seperately.

You can only use GL to render while SDL has the ability to create the window and handle input to + other stuff. You can use GL and SDL if you want.

If dev-cpp has gl.h (Probably in it's include/GL folder and a lib file. Perhaps dev-cpp uses another extension for it's lib files. I don't know much about it.
The opengl32.dll comes with Windows.

You might want to use GLU (glu.h and the lib). Windows comes with glu32.dll

The only thing left is to update your video drivers.

PS: Read the FAQ
