It might be out-dated post...

I can compile SDL 1.2.15 on Mac OS X 10.10.5 and this procedure might be valid on after Mac OS X 10.9...

You need to patch SDL 1.2.15 to build on Mac OS X 10.9 and after.  
There are two patch.  But if you build SDL without X11 support, you need former one only:



$ cd SDL-1.2.15/
$ patch -u -p0 < no-CGDirectPaletteRef.patch
$ patch -u -p0 < sdl_x11sym.patch

I have bookmarked the blog which explains the reason why we need those patch, but now that page can't accessible.  So the reason have lost from my poor brain... ;-(

I have ffplay build instruction blog in Japanese:

for ffmpeg ffprobe: http://xanadu62.blogspot.com/2013/10/ffmpeg.html

for ffplay: http://xanadu62.blogspot.jp/2014/11/ffplay.html

Hope google translator will help you...
