This SConstruct file can be used as a simple template to build a SDL application in Windows. Uses MinWG and will need to be customized slightly to work with other compilers like Visual Studio's compiler.
This example includes a windows resource which links the executable to a .ico file and it uses the -mwindows flag so no annoying dialog window will appear when the application is started.
