Not if the new SDL -dev package Conflicts: xlibs-pic (<< version-it-uses).

That will keep packages from being built with the wrong PIC objects.
Since these objects are encapsulated in the packages, it doesn't matter
what, if any, extenstion library PIC objects are installed on the user's
system, and the existing shlibdeps mechanism will serve to haul in the
correct version of SDL.
