I agree.

The issue I see at the moment is that setting SDL_LIBRARY_TEMP is
not required by CMakeSetup. So you can finish the "configure" step
without setting SDL_LIBRARY_TEMP. But if you do so it will not compile
under Windows. So this should not happen.

So the options to me are:

- initialize SDL_LIBRARY_TEMP with the SDLMAIN_LIBRARY path (removing the
- create a SDL_LIBRARIES_PATH variable to be set with CMakeSetup
- create a SDL_LIBRARY to be set by the user and a SDL_LIBRARY_FLAGS
replacing the
  current SDL_LIBRARY

What do you think?
