Bug#787189: SDL_stretch.h causes compile error

Package: libsdl-stretch-dev
Version: 0.3.1-4

Including the SDL_stretch header file causes the following compile
/usr/include/SDL_stretch/SDL_stretch.h:25:23: fatal error: SDL_video.h:
No such file or directory #include "SDL_video.h"

This is because the SDL stretch header files are in a separate

There are 2 possible solutions:
1. The SDL stretch header files should be in /usr/include/SDL with the
other SDL files

2. Comment the offending line out in SDL_stretch.h

Option 2 is tested as workable because the header file continues with:
#ifndef  _SDL_video_h
#include <SDL/SDL_video.h>
... which means it will still work. But I think option 1 is preferable.

I don't know if this is an upstream bug. But as it stands, it unusable
unless that line is commented out.
