Subject: SDL Patch

Hio,

I saw your last call on the mailing list. Here's a patch which I
submitted about two weeks ago which hasn't made it in.

In the current sdl.m4, there's a bug where if your configure.ac, you
have AC_LANG(C++) specified, it won't properly compile and link the SDL
test program when you run the configure script. This is because only the
default CFLAGS is overriden in sdl.m4, and in the patch below, I've
fixed it so it overrides CXXFLAGS as well, allowing it to work with g++.

     2 To compile and install SDL:
     3 
     4     1.  Run './configure; make; make install'
     5 
     6         If you are compiling for Windows using gcc, read the FAQ at:
     7         http://www.libsdl.org/faq.php?action=listentries&category=4#42
     8 
     9         If you are compiling using Visual C++ on Win32, you should read
    10         the file VisualC.html
    11 
    12     2.  Look at the example programs in ./test, and check out the HTML
    13         documentation in ./docs to see how to use the SDL library.
    14 
    15     3.  Join the SDL developer mailing list by sending E-mail to
    16     	sdl-request@libsdl.org
    17         and put "subscribe" in the subject of the message.
