[SDL] Problems to compile SDL* under GNU Win32 compilers.

Hello Johannes,

   I've tryed to run reimp (yes, only run) on some official SDL libraries,
without going further to know if the conversion had worked.
Successfully runned on: SDL.lib (1.2.2), SDL_net.lib (1.2.2).
Didn't worked on: SDLmain.lib (1.2.2), SDL_image.lib (1.2.0), SDL_mixer
   As you can see, this program don't work on half the SDL libraries, so I
think it's not really usable. And more, I've not tested if the generated .a
file would effectively work in a project build.

Best regards,

I don ´t compile under windows, but I herad of a tool called reimp
that converts *.lib to *.a files.
