Hi! I'm trying to compile XBMC on Gutsy Gibbon and I'm getting the following error:

checking for main in -lSDL... no
checking for main in -lSDL_image... no
configure: error: == Could not find a required library. Please see README.linux

I couldn't find lSDL in synaptic package manager or in README.linux

Does anyone have any information regarding this?

-l = link to library

-lSDL = link to the sdl library

i.e. you need to read README.linux a bit more carefully and make sure to run the apt-get line listed for gusty
