Subject: [SDL] [Patch] SDL-1.2 SDL_revcpy() asm patch for the cld flag


as reported through the FreeBSD bug tracking system in SDL 1.2.13 (and
in the 1.2 branch, if I see that correctly) the SDL_revcpy() macro sets
the direction flag (std), but does not clear it afterwards (cld), which
is wrong according to the GCC and SYS V specs. This can cause some
weird side effects, which in turn can lead to memory corruption.

You can read the full report with a detailed description and test
program at

Attached is the submitted patch, which fixes the issue.

Damien Carbery fixed bug #542

In SDL 1.2.13 sdl.m4 the AM_PATH_SDL function looks for sdl-config.
It sets the PATH:
but does not save the current PATH or restore the current PATH at the end.

This breaks the build on Solaris because we have GNU tools in another dir
(listed at the top of PATH) but non-GNU tools with the same names in
$prefix/bin. Later configure tests finds the non-GNU tools and quits in error

Sam Lantinga <> [Thu, 03 Jan 2008 06:19:07 +0000] rev 4134
Updates for building on Windows CE using mingw32ce cross compiler:


I just managed to compile SDL for Windows CE using the "mingw32ce"
configuration of Test programs work as expected
(except for those using signals -- no POSIX on mingw32ce), and I didn't yet
encounter any problem.

While it was a pain to get everything compiled and running, the changes to
SDL are actually quite small (see attached SDL-ce.diff).

Unfortunately, the win32 headers shipped with cegcc are not 100% correct, and
it feels quite messy to work around them in SDL code, so those headers will
also need to be patched. (Attachment: win32api-ce.diff)

Since I had to apply the libtool patch from the cegcc patch, I have also ad ded
my copy of aclocal.m4 for SDL. I had to modify the cegcc libtool patch to
use "lt_cv_deplibs_check_method=pass_all" for mingw32ce, otherwise libtool
would not recognize the import libraries as valid for dynamic linking.

All these changes should not affect non-WinCE builds, so they could be
included in mainline SDL.

If you need some docs, you can use this description for a cross-compilation

1) get cegcc from
2) build and install the "mingw32ce" variant (see cegcc installation docs)
3) patch w32api-headers (if not yet included in cegcc)
4) setup environment (customize the first three lines as you like):
BUILD=`uname -m`-pc-linux-gnu
export PATH="$PREFIX/bin:$PREFIX/$TARGET/bin:$PREFIX/local/bin:$PATH"
export CFLAGS="${CFLAGS:- -O2 -g} -I$PREFIX/local/include"
export CPPFLAGS="${CPPFLAGS:- -O2 -g} -I$PREFIX/local/include"
export CXXFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS:- -O2 -g} -I$PREFIX/local/include"
export LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS:- -O2 -g} -L$PREFIX/local/lib"
export HOST_CC="gcc"
export CC="$PREFIX/bin/$TARGET-gcc"
export CXX="$PREFIX/bin/$TARGET-g++"
export LD="$PREFIX/bin/$TARGET-ld"
export AS="$PREFIX/bin/$TARGET-as"
export AR="$PREFIX/bin/$TARGET-ar"
export RANLIB="$PREFIX/bin/$TARGET-ranlib"
export CONFIG_SHELL="/bin/sh"
5) build and install
./configure --target=$TARGET --host=$TARGET --build=$BUILD
make install
6) use (4) and (5) for any SDL-using software you want to cross-compile
7) copy $PREFIX/local/bin/SDL-1-2-0.dll into your executable directory on the WinCE machine

Fixed bug #531

The static libs should include all the other libraries the dynamic SDL library
links with.

sdl.pc should include these so "pkg-config sdl --libs --static" works
