Added a #define option for compile time Xrender support. Added some more attributes (specific to Xrender) to the X11 structs. Added some code for querying the Xrender extension.


To compile and install SDL:

    0.  If you have downloaded this from the website, skip to the next step.
        If you have checked this out from subversion, you'll need to run
        ./autogen.sh to build the configure script. 

    1.  Run './configure; make; make install'

        If you are compiling for Windows using gcc, read the FAQ at:
        http://www.libsdl.org/faq.php?action=listentries&category=4#42

        If you are compiling using Visual C++ on Win32, you should read
        the file VisualC.html

    2.  Look at the example programs in ./test, and check out the HTML
        documentation in ./docs to see how to use the SDL library.

    3.  Join the SDL developer mailing list by sending E-mail to
    	sdl-request@libsdl.org
        and put "subscribe" in the subject of the message.

        Or alternatively you can use the web interface:
            http://www.libsdl.org/mailing-list.php

That's it!
