SDL itself is a library. The usual way to link with SDL is to link to the library as well as any other libraries you're using. I suppose there would be a way to combine the .lib or .a files, but I don't see the point. What are you trying to do?

Basically...I want to make a graphics engine...but don't want to deal with the crossplatform problems of input and window management. Unless those are simpler than I think they are.

That would probably be a bad idea, as well as breaking the terms of the LGPL. Let users of your library link with SDL themselves.


Unless, of course, you make your program source code available under a GPL compatible license.
