The problem may be that the SDL4FreePascal C-header translation was 
done for an older version than what you have now, so that type and 
function definitions are wrong now. There are two possible solutions:

a) install the same version of SDL on your system as what you were 
using before
b) translate the SDL headers of the new version to Pascal (or bug 
someone else to do it :)
