[SDL] SDL for Mac OS X

  You'll need to add -framework AGL to your link line, something like
this ought to work ok:
  -lSDL -framework OpenGL -framework AGL -framework Carbon

I'm still trying to resolve a problem I'm having on MacOS-X, when
I call the gluNewQuadric() routine inside of a small SDL program
it crashes.  If I do the same thing inside of a GLUT program, it
works fine.  I don't know why yet.  I don't even have to _USE_ the
quadric, just calling gluNewQuadric() will do it.  Another interesting
thing is that calling the other gluxxx() routines apparently works fine.
If anyone has a clue on that, I'd like to hear about it...
