The renderer for the DS is not used anymore, but I left the file in place if someone wants to finish it. I've also added a README.ds and fixed the spinlocks.

================================================================================
Simple DirectMedia Layer for Nintendo DS
================================================================================

-Requirements-
The devkitpro SDK available at http://devkitpro.org.
Read the information at http://devkitpro.org/wiki/Getting_Started/devkitARM
The necessary packages are devkitARM, libnds and default arm7.

-Building SDL-
After setting the devkitpro environment, type:
  make -f Makefile.ds

This will compile and install the library and headers into the proper libnds directories.
Additionnaly it will compile the general test, that you can run either on the DS or with desmume:
  desmume test/nds-test-progs/general/general.nds


Note that the port is very basic and incomplete.
