Fixed bug 1582 - Allow disabling SDL_VIDEO_DRIVER_WINDOWS

Marcus von Appen

Trying to build SDL 2.x (HG) on Win32 platforms with either VS.NET or MinGW requires one to have the video subsystem and SDL_VIDEO_DRIVER_WINDOWS flag enabled due to the helper window creation routines.

The attached patch changes the helper window creation behaviour, so that one can build SDL2 without the video subsystem or Windows video drivers on Win32 platforms.
     1 The latest development version of SDL is available via Mercurial.
     2 Mercurial allows you to get up-to-the-minute fixes and enhancements;
     3 as a developer works on a source tree, you can use "hg" to mirror that
     4 source tree instead of waiting for an official release. Please look
     5 at the Mercurial website ( http://mercurial.selenic.com/ ) for more
     6 information on using hg, where you can also download software for
     7 Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix systems.

     9   hg clone http://hg.libsdl.org/SDL

    11 If you are building SDL with an IDE, you will need to copy the file
    12 include/SDL_config.h.default to include/SDL_config.h before building.
    13 
    14 If you are building SDL via configure, you will need to run autogen.sh
    15 before running configure.
