SDL 1.1.6 is in pkgsrc already (devel/SDL)...

Tomasz Luchowski and I attempted to get avifile working a while back but
failed.. I'm not sure if this was due to the thread problem visible with
xmms or if it had something to do with the Wine code snippets (Wine
doesn't work on NetBSD 1.5, but I don't know the exact reason why).
Hopefully neither of these problems affect XMPS..

If you need any help in packaging this application, I'll be more than
happy to lend a hand.
