I wasn't able to get it directly through CVS either, but you should be
able to find a snapshot from http://www.libsdl.org/cvs/. Be sure to
read README.CVS and INSTALL in the archive! (I'm not even sure whether
the SDL-1.3 CVS snapshot has been updated to the latest CVS -- it looks
like half a year old -- so I just assumed that no one has been working
on it for a long time.)
You will then need to patch it before compiling. You should be able to
find the patch in the May 2005 archive (look for "render target" or
something under my name).
FYI: To apply the patch, go to the SDL-1.3 directory and execute the
command patch -p1 < where_you_put_the_patch_file/SDL-1.3.diff
