I think that you should have no problems compiling any version of SDL 
and linking with it statically. You will have some code size overhead,
but that's a cost of flexibility.

This 'static linking solution' does not work for any library though. For
example, if you badly need some kind of upgraded or optimized version of
xserver, this can't be done so easily...
