I did apt-get build-dep gnash after adding

deb-src http://www.getgnash.org/deb-repo ubuntu main

to a Jaunty system. Then I tried to build gnash with

apt-get source gnash -b

which failed with

ERROR: No SDL development package installed!
Install it from http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php
or .deb users: apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev
or .rpm users: yum install SDL-devel

After installing libsdl1.2-dev, that error went away.

Seems like libsdl1.2-dev is missing from the list of build dependencies for the deb package?
