By default SDL will only link against glibc, the rest of the features will be
gabomdq@7972
     6
enabled dynamically at runtime depending on the available features on the target
gabomdq@7972
     7
system. So, for example if you built SDL with Xinerama support and the target
gabomdq@7972
     8
system does not have the Xinerama libraries installed, it will be disabled
gabomdq@7972
     9
at runtime, and you won't get a missing library error, at least with the 
gabomdq@7972
    10
default configuration parameters.

NOTES:
gabomdq@7973
    26
- This includes all the audio targets except arts, because Ubuntu pulled the 
gabomdq@7973
    27
  artsc0-dev package, but in theory SDL still supports it.
gabomdq@7973
    28
- DirectFB isn't included because the configure script (currently) fails to find
gabomdq@7973
    29
  it at all. You can do "sudo apt-get install libdirectfb-dev" and fix the 
gabomdq@7973
    30
  configure script to include DirectFB support. Send patches.  :)
