Ok so I've been doing research and can't seem to find the correct answer to my problem. I am a linux(Arch) user, and am trying to compile programs that run on Windows. I realize this is a lengthy discussion topic of its own. However I had a method that was working well for me using mingw.

compile line:

/usr/bin/i486-mingw32-g++ -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ -L . test.cpp -o test.exe


Now my problem is I've just started learning to use SDL. I can link and compile it for linux just fine using:

g++ -Wall test.cpp -o test -lSDL


When I try to compile for windows I get a fatal error: SDL/SDL.h: no such file or directory. I know this is a linking problem, So I've tried:

/usr/bin/i486-mingw32-g++ -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ -L . test.cpp -o test.exe -lSDL


and

/usr/bin/i486-mingw32-g++ -static -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ -L . test.cpp -o test.exe


However neither work. I've not had much luck with search results and I've also heard if I compile it staticlly I may run into issues with LGPL. If anyone could shed some light on this problem I'd be greatly appreciative.
