This is a problem on the Jedi-sdl side. However I'm currently
corresponding with the maintainer to get it upgraded. Not only
to compile straight away with 1.9.x, but also for other unices.

The last release version is in CVS under projects/contrib/sdl along
with a few ported demoes.

Unit linux/unix is totally split up. See 

for a short description.

Strange, the oldlinux one is a direct copy of the 1.0.x code. Hmm, maybe
something register parameters?
