Rather "-L/his/home/sdl_amd64/lib -R/his/home/sdl_amd64/lib"
Because I doubt, an amd64 version of libSDL is currently present in
(and he doesn't have w access).

This method is btw not really "new" to me, see my posting from a few

It has its [dis]advantages.
Namely that the paths to a library are _not_ hardwired.
That's the exactly reason, why I did recommend it in this very scenario.
And I would do it again for Ishwar's current needs.
