Before people go off and write nasty letters to people,
under LGPL section 3c if they included the SDL.dll from libsdl.org,
you only have to specify the terms under which you got the original
binary lib. So saying the following is all you need to comply:
"SDL.dll and source can be found at http://www.libsdl.org"
Optionally, you can invoke section 3b, which say the following
"Source code for SDL.dll is avaible on CD for $5.00 USD + shipping
upon request from: <your contact details here>"
Yes folks you read that right, you can charge the cost of
distribution in a machine readable format, but you must support
this option for 3+ years.
(BTW that charging clause is in the GPL too...)
