Description of problem:
When compiling apps against SDL, SDL pulls in -lX11. However, XFree86-devel is
not listed in the Requires: for the -devel module.
So when building packages that BuildRequire SDL-devel, the build fails if
XFree86-devel is not installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a clean build root without XFree86-devel installed
2. build a package that BuildRequires: SDL-devel (and runs the
sdl-config check in configure)
3. See the check fail because libX11.so can't be found
Actual Results: the check fails
Expected Results: ideally, it should succeed
Agreed, dependency added in 1.2.4-3.
Fix confirmed in SDL-1.2.5-9
