libsdl-1.2.5.ebuild is using unmodified SDL.  KEYWORDS="~x86 alpha ~ppc"
so you're probably not getting that currently.  The current stable SDL for
x86 seems to be a CVS snapshot, which may have been modified.

(insert subliminal message for Sam to make sdl-cvs list so people like
Knghtbrd can follow the SDL commits as they happen..  Sam has the scripts
necessary to do it, but Joseph can resend these if necessary.)
