Compiling spcacat

Turns out the spca5xxx people also have a program called spcacat that can be used to do framegrabbing with their driver. I tried compiling it but it complained that it couldn't find libSDL (, which is a multimedia porting layer. So, grabbed the latest SDL sources (SDL-1.2.11.tar.gz from the above site), set my PATH to find my trusted arm cross tools, and, after some trial and error, determined this would get me a copy of libSDL:

$ ./configure --host arm-linux --disable-esd --disable-alsa --disable-video-x11
$ make

Will continue trying to get the spcacat program cross-compiled at a later time, but looking good so far...
