Fixes #2541, build failure with Wayland enabled, OpenGL ES disabled

Also includes an attempt at fixing building SDL on Ubuntu 13.10, which hopefully
won't break 14.04

SDL's build system was traditionally based on autotools. Over time, this
slouken@7222
     6
approach has suffered from several issues across the different supported 
slouken@7222
     7
platforms.

To solve these problems, a new build system based on CMake is under development.

It works in parallel to the legacy system, so users can experiment with it

    10
without complication.

While still experimental, the build system should be usable on the following

Assuming the source for SDL is located at ~/sdl
slouken@7222
    25
slouken@7222
    26
cd ~
slouken@7222
    27
mkdir build
slouken@7222
    28
cd build
slouken@7222
    29
cmake ../sdl
slouken@7222
    30
slouken@7222
    31
This will build the static and dynamic versions of SDL in the ~/build directory.
