This fix actually makes SDL usable on more platforms, therefore its more
important than not fixing it.  It gets worse before it gets better.

Lastly, it doesn't break binary compatibility if things were compiled
sanely.  I've tested with a couple loki games and they seem fine.

Debian isn't just every other distribution, we are one of the few that
actually give a care about working on more than i386, and by doing these
changes it helps that goal.
