Yes. And for some reason, the linker picks the main of our system unit 
to execute instead of the one in libsdl. I don't know on what basis it 
does this. The reason it doesn't trigger a duplicate symbol error is 
that the Mac OS X linker works with a two-level name space: all 
libraries have their own symbol namespace (although you can disable 
this for legacy *nix compatibility using an environment variable).
