SDL's build system was traditionally based on autotools. Over time, this
approach has suffered from several issues across the different supported
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
While still experimental, the build system should be usable on the following
* VS.NET 2010
* MinGW and Msys
* OS X with support for XCode
Assuming the source for SDL is located at ~/sdl
This will build the static and dynamic versions of SDL in the ~/build directory.
