Subject: [Fwd: SDL patch: make usage of rpath optional]

Here's a small patch against current SDL CVS that makes usage of rpath
optional, by passing --disable-rpath to configure. This comes in handy
when redistributing SDL -- the rpath setting prevents the lib being
loaded if it's not in the rpath, which makes redistributing in packages
to be installed by non-root users pretty much useless.
     1 
     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.
    18
