libsdl1.2debian: NMU addressing #128075

I'll make this short and sweet: 


The diff against -3.3 is attached as a reference; this would be my first
NMU so please let me know about any stupid mistakes. :) The change will
require most packages using SDL to be rebuilt on powerpc and alpha, they
can be dealt with using binary NMUs as they are discovered.

I'm also pushing the change upstream, a post to the SDL mailing list is
awaiting moderator approval.

Anyway, unless there are serious objections, I'd like to upload this
ASAP. As Branden put it: 'If something is wrong with the vidmode
extension on Alpha, I (as the XFree86 maintainer) want to know about

PS: I'm not subscribed to -devel and -alpha.
