Subject: SDL trunk (r2346) and Mac OS X

The current state of the trunk doesn't quite compile on Mac OS X,
I've attached a series of patches that gets it to compile and kills a
few warnings.

sdl-trunk-r2346-dlcompat-warnings.diff:
The dlcompat thing is just loaded with incorrect type signatures ..
some of them have changed since 10.2 and others are just flat wrong.
This puts it in sync with the latest headers. People on 10.2 will get
the warnings instead of people with new kits.
     1 This is the porting of 1.2.0 version of SDL (the latest stable one)
     2 to AmigaOS/68k.
     3 
     4 All the bugs known of the past version have been corrected. And I've
     5 added all the new SDL features.
     6 
     7 This version of SDL needs Cybergraphx V3 (r69+) or CyberGraphX V4
     8 and AHI v3+. Probably it works also with P96 or CGXAga, but it's 
     9 untested.
    10 
    11 This version is available as linked library for SAS/C and GCC, only 68k this 
    12 time, a powerup (ppcemu compatible) and a morphos version will be ready quite 
    13 soon (i hope).
    14 
    15 Implemented:
    16 
    17 - 8/16/24/32bit video modes, both fullscreen and windowed.
    18 - Hardware surfaces.
    19 - CGX blitting acceleration.
    20 - CGX colorkey blitting acceleration.
    21 - AHI audio (8/16 bit, with any audio format), always uses unit 0 for now.
    22 - Thread support (maybe not 100% compatible with other implementations)
    23 - Semaphores 
    24 - Window resizing and backdrop windows (NEW)
    25 - Joystick/Joypad support.
    26 
    27 To do:
    28 
    29 - CDRom audio playing support
    30 - OpenGL (A guy was working on it but I've lost his tracks :( )
    31 
    32 The SAS/C library is distributed with debug info attached, to strip debug info 
    33 simply add STRIPDEBUG argument to the linker.
    34 
    35 NOTE: SDL includes debug output using kprintf, to disable it add to your 
    36 project a function like this:
    37 
    38 void kprintf(char *a,...)
    39 {
    40 }
    41 
    42 Otherwise you can redirect the debug to a console window with sushi, sashimi or
    43 similar tools (the default output is the internal serial port).
