When compiling SDL for the Raspberry Pi, I have to use the --host parameter to enable compilation of the native Raspberry Pi video driver, like so:

--host=arm-raspberry-linux-gnueabihf

It took me a while to figure out that this was necessary in order to have the native Raspberry Pi video driver compiled in. I think it would be better if there was an option like --enable-video-rpi that could be passed to configure and that would also show up when saying configure --help. Currently, it’s rather difficult to figure out that you have to use the --host parameter with arm-raspberry-linux-gnueabihf in order to get Raspberry Pi video support. It’s also somewhat inconsistent because most other video drivers can in fact be enabled/disabled through specific configure parameters but there is no such parameter for the native Raspberry Pi video driver.
