Smile Sourcecompiling Problem...The sdl-config script installed by SDL could not be found.

Hello to All,
I am getting the below listed error while compiling from source...
checking for ranlib... ranlib
checking for an ANSI C-conforming const... yes
checking for main in -lm... yes
checking for sdl-config... no
checking for SDL - version >= 1.1.5... no
*** The sdl-config script installed by SDL could not be found
*** If SDL was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the SDL_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to sdl-config.
configure: error: *** SDL version 1.1.5 not found!
I searched for sdl-config/SDL package in Sarge and Ubuntu but didnt find yet.Please Help me....
