[SDL] cmake win7 support

Ok I finally was able to make it compile and link but I had to patch two


I see that cmake generates a SDL_config.h file but the thing doesn't seem
to be working as intended there are some macros that get defined if there
is no definition at all. So the cmake should generate the SDL_config.h file
defining those macros with a 0 value at least, otherwise you get a lot of
compiling and linking errors.

I had to comment the following lines in SDL_config_windows.h

#define SDL_VIDEO_OPENGL_ES2    1

The other issue is to include the SDL_config_windows.h file in SDL_window.h
in order to make the directsound thing compile.

Maybe I missed something, please let me know if I did something wrong.

Best regards,
