Problem solved.  I couldn't reach the SDL website the other day in order
to download the source, so I was building SDL using a source tarball
from the current Debian package (it looks like a CVS snapshot prior to
the 1.2.8 release).  Now that the website is back up, I used the 1.2.8
release package, and everything is working fine.
