FreeBSD has a bunch of patches for SDL in the port... try installing it
from there, works great for me. 

	# cd /usr/ports/devel/sdl12 && make install clean

If anyone wants to see the patches and doesn't have fbsd, the cvs
repositories url for the sdl12 patches are at

(if you use fbsd but don't have a ports dir, install it from your cd or
better yet, set up cvsup and get the latest version)

The opinions expressed by me are not necessarily opinions. In all probability,
they are random rambling, and to be ignored. Failure to ignore may result in
severe boredom or confusion. Shake well before opening. Keep Refrigerated.
