Subject: [SDL] exec stack in libsdl update

i posted back in September a patch to remove executable stacks:
http://www.devolution.com/pipermail/sdl/2005-September/070626.html

later in November, a similar patch was merged it seems:
http://www.libsdl.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/SDL12/src/hermes/mmx_main.asm

however, this lacks the additional output format checks that i posted in my
patch ... this isnt a problem if the hermes asm code is only ever used to
produce ELF objects, but if this is not true, then the additional checks in
my original patch will need to be merged

In the jump from 1.2 to 1.3, we should change the SDL_Rect members to
slouken@0
    21
int and evaluate all the rest of the datatypes.  This is the only place
slouken@0
    22
we should do it though, since the 1.2 series should not break binary
slouken@0
    23
compatibility in this way.
