Hi Kartik & Tobias,

1/ as for building strawberry perl binaries:
- I use MSYS shell + gcc included in straberry perl
- it builds fine without any patching simply by running: ./configure && make

it seems like DirectX headers included in strawberry's gcc (I am using the latest 5.16.2) play well with SDL2

2/ as for Alien::SDL2
what libraries do we want to include?
how does SLD2 work with SDL_gfx, SDL_mixer, ... ? are they still needed?
what I want to avoid (if possible) is SDL_Pango (huge GTK dependency chain)
