To add another guess.

If you're using Mandrake (like I do). If you install from .rpm file, it 
will place sdl_ttf.h in /usr/local/include/SDL instead of 
/usr/include/SDL where all other SDL files are. Just copy the file to 
the right direction and that's all.

After you do install of -devel pacage, just search for a file named 
sdl_ttf.h in your /usr directory.
