Installing libsdl on MacOS Lion (from source)

There are binary distributions, but they didn’t do the job for me. It seems to be better to install from source (particularly if your not using it as a fancy framework):

#make sure you have XCode installed...
curl http://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL-1.2.14.tar.gz > SDL-1.2.14.tar.gz
tar xvzf SDL-1.2.14.tar.gz
./configure --disable-assembly
make
sudo make install
