libSDL could not be found


i am trying to compile UAE with SDL support and have libSDL1.2 installed. I did ./configure and got:

checking for graphics target to build... configure: WARNING: SDL support wanted, but libSDL could not be found
configure: error: Could not find a useable graphics target
Even though it looks silly to point that out i put a symlink /usr/lib/ to /usr/lib/ and added --with-sdl-prefix=/usr/lib/ to the line but no success.

what am i doing wrong?

Try putting the path to SDL in /etc/ and then run ldconfg to update the dynamic linker ..

man ldconfig

No, didn't help. Still same error.

What exactly is missing when libSDL is missing - is it ?
