It means that you can't use native midi if timidity is ok and available, even if you set the SDL_NATIVE_MUSIC environment variable (as written in native_midi_gpl/README). It would be nice to be able to test either output without having to recompile with one or the other disabled.

  •   }
      if ( native_midi_ok )

native_midi_ok = native_midi_detect();
