I'm not so sure. Given that the supported way of including SDL in an
application is via "cc `sdl-config --cflags` app.c `sdl-config
--libs`", it's not clear that there's value to library dependancies.

Having SDL contain a recorded dependance on would make
the p5-SDL problem more difficult; perl really has no interest in
dynamically loading
