This lintian override needs updating:
I: libsdl-sound1.2: unused-override package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libSDL-sound-1.2-0
W: libsdl-sound1.2: package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libSDL-sound-1.0-1

A few other lintian tags:
W: sdl-sound1.2 source: out-of-date-standards-version 3.9.2 (current is 3.9.3)
I: libsdl-sound1.2: spelling-error-in-copyright GNU Lesser Public License GNU Lesser General
Public License
I: libsdl-sound1.2: spelling-error-in-copyright GNU Public License GNU General Public License

You can now use "" in the Format
of debian/copyright.

You should get rid of the package-needs-versioned-debhelper-build-depends override by bumping the
debhelper build-dependency to >= 9.

In debian/rules "override_dh_auto_installchangelogs" should be "override_dh_installchangelogs".

-Wl,--as-needed doesn't work ("dependency on could be avoided").
dh_autoreconf with --as-needed will likely fix this.

libsdl-sound1.2-dev has a lot of dependencies but SDL_sound.h only includes stuff from SDL so I think
they can be reduced to just "${misc:Depends}, libsdl-sound1.2 (= ${binary:Version}), libsdl1.2-dev
(>= 1.2.14)".

Do you know why modplug and physfs support is disabled?
