To make it possible to install libsdl2-dev:amd64 and libsdl2-dev:i386 at
the same time.

I proposed a libsdl2 change to make this possible in 2018, but it wasn't
considered acceptable for whatever reason, so I proposed two more possible
approaches in an attempt to get things moving, and the libsdl2 maintainers
applied one of the new approaches.

Unfortunately, this caused regressions for lots of packages that use

I consider this to be a RC bug in libsdl2, and I have proposed a solution
for it (which is essentially the same thing I proposed the first time,
in 2018), but I haven't had any response other than a non-maintainer
essentially saying "those packages were wrong anyway" (which might be
true, but a regression is a regression).

I think the best solution for this would be to fix the dependent packages
*and* fix libsdl2.

FindSDL2.cmake is fragile and easily broken by distro changes like this
one, so it would be better to see whether they would accept a patch to
drop FindSDL2.cmake and rely on SDL >= 2.0.4's sdl2-config.cmake instead,
similar to this one: https://github.com/JACoders/OpenJK/pull/1033
