Options was the configure tab at compiler options, there at the bottom was a 
input field called additional options. there i entered 

'sdl-config --libs' 'sdl-config --cflags`

and pressed ok
this is what the compiler said :

Running configure in source directory 
configure: warning: sdl-config --libs: invalid host type 
configure: warning: sdl-config --cflags: invalid host type 
configure: error: can only configure for one host and one target at a time 
*** failed *** 

Any idea's ?
