SDL was changed to avoid linking XFree86 static libraries into its
shared libraries, which doesn't work on all architectures. Fixing your
code should be a matter of making sure you use the sdl-config tool to
get the right compiler and linker flags for SDL ('sdl-config --cflags'
and 'sdl-config --libs' respectively). That way your code will be
insulated from SDL reorganizations.
