AC_CHECK_LIB is OK, and AC_SEARCH_LIBS might be better.

Don't use echo like that.

Do the AC_CHECK_LIB and after it's done check ac_cv_lib_SDL_Init or
other values, and if those are missing call AC_MSG_ERROR to note your
error condition and exit.

Or if you use AC_SEARCH_LIBS use ac_cv_search_SDL_Init (or whatever) and
check that way.
