How to run SDL native with Cygwin


>From http://www.libsdl.org/extras/win32/cygwin/ :

Steps to build SDL natively with the Cygwin environment available at:
	http://www.cygwin.com/

These steps assume that you are comfortable with the UNIX environment.

Step 1. Run the Cygwin setup program, install the default packages and
        the development packages (adding any extras you want, like
vim).
Step 2. Run the Cygwin shell.  Further instructions assume you're in
this shell.
Step 3. Extract the SDL source into a directory and run:
	./configure && make && make install
Step 4. When you're ready to build SDL applications, copy SDL.dll from
        /usr/local/lib to whereever your SDL application source
resides.

Troubleshooting:
===========================================================================
Q: I get an error when building and I unpacked the source in a path
with spaces.
A: Unpack the source in a path without spaces, like /tmp, and build
there.
===========================================================================
Q: I get the following error while building SDL:
	GL/gl.h: No such file or directory
A: You need to get the OpenGL development headers from:
	http://www.libsdl.org/extras/win32/cygwin/opengl-devel.tar.gz
   You need to unpack these in the /usr directory.
===========================================================================
Q: My version of SDL doesn't have DirectX support!
A: You need to get the DirectX development headers and libraries from:
	http://www.libsdl.org/extras/win32/cygwin/directx-devel.tar.gz
   You need to unpack these in the /usr directory.
===========================================================================
Q: My version of SDL doesn't have assembly support, NASM is not
available.
A: You need to get nasm assembler from:
	http://www.libsdl.org/extras/win32/cygwin/nasm.exe
   Put this file in the /usr/bin directory.
===========================================================================
