It is not legal to run applications that load shared libraries or frameworks.
The SDL projects for iPhone do not build a framework, they build a static
In order to distribute an application linking with SDL as a static library
you must either provide your source or object files so that someone can
relink your application with a modified version of SDL (satisfying the LGPL)
or you must contact me for commercial licensing of SDL 1.3.
Note that this option is not available for most commercial consoles, so if
you use SDL or another emulator or library that uses SDL on those consoles
you will need to contact me for commercial licensing.
