And of course, immediately after sending this I realised what the problem was :-/

I had built SDL using the included Xcode project, but then had done a make && make install from the command line (since I didn't want to use the dmg/framework).  Urk.  This had left me with the default SDL_config.h which includes SDL_config_macosx.h and thus resulted in problems since the install target doesn't expect to copy the platform specific config files over (rightfully from what I can tell).

After clobbering my SDL workspace and running autogen.sh, configure, and make install again, everything was as expected.
