I mean the configure already detects the SDL-version installed.

See next mail.

SDL output handles all the keystrokes it only has a bug that after the
first keypress you might have to press a key twice to work, I haven't
tracked that down, because in that case the keypress is not captured
by the check_events() function, so I have to find out where the
problem is.

    <-  or  ->      seek backward/forward 10 seconds
    up or down      seek backward/forward 1 minute
    p or SPACE      pause movie (press any key to continue)
    q  or  ^C       stop playing and quit program

so q or Ctrl+C should be quit, thought the esc option for
fullscreen changing was documented there too (DOCS/README), anyway
it should be unified between outputdrivers.
