Building SDL apps for the Zaurus

I just now was able to build a simple SDL-based application for my Zaurus
I am a relative newbie to development under Linux and SDL so I found this
to be a bit challenging.

I searched for a few days for a howto and could not find one. I decided to
try to hack around and get it working without asking for help and I was
successful thanks to other SDL and Zaurus development documentation.

I’m wondering if there is a howto somewhere that I just missed. If so I’d
like to read it and see if I can improve my method. If not then I’ll
publish my method for the sake of other newbies.
