#664 closed defect (wontfix)

build on FreeBSD is not working out of the box

There should be an option to the configure script where and under what name to find the sdl-config script.

As it is hard-coded to 'sdl-config' without any error checking the build results in _many_ warnings and error messages, before gcc finally gives up to compile on my system where sdl-config is actually named sdl11-config:

~/src/scummvm/backends/sdl> sdl11-config --version 1.2.5

If I manually substitute all 'sdl-config' with 'sdl11-config' the build and ScummVM itselfs works flawless.

Just edit build.rules. I have to do that on OS X, too, after all.

Furthermore, I consider it a severe bug in FreeBSD that they *still* incorrectly renamed sdl-config to sdl11-config - SDL is not even at version 1.1 anymore, and 1.1. never was intended for a broad audience anyway, it was the development branch of SDL between 1.0 and 1.2
