Hi Alexey,

I stumbled on the same issue when building from sources on Windows. Just in
case if anyone else stumbles on this and as me is not keen on building the
dependencies from sources - the SDL-devel-.1.2.15-VC.zip that comes from
the libSDL site can't be just unzipped straightforward since it's directory
layout is different as expected by the script. The archive has the
libraries in \lib\x64 while as can be seen by the output of the script the
script only checks the \lib directory. So either, after unzipping fix the
directory structure to make the script happy by copying the correct version
of files in the \lib directory, or if you want to build both x86 and x64 as
I did, just patch the script to use correct paths for each architecture.
Just my two cents on this:)
