AFAICT, that message means that SDL support was not properly compiled into the version you are using.

When you build from source, SDL is not enabled by default. You need to:

(0. ./autogen.sh - if building from trunk)
1. ./configure --enable-sdl
2. make
3. make install (or debian/rules binary if you want a deb)

If you have an i386 machine (ie. not AMD64) then you can try this deb:
