Fix cross compilation

This patch enhances the algorithm which finds the correct settings for SDL.
For cross compilations (when cross_prefix is set), it looks for sdl-config
with cross prefix. Here is the complete search order:

$(cross_prefix}pkg-config (old, only used for cross compilation)
${cross_prefix}sdl_config (new, only used for cross compilation)
pkg-config (old, needs PATH)
sdl-config (old, needs PATH)

Cross SDL packages (or the user) now can simply set a link (for example
/usr/bin/i586-mingw32msvc-sdl-config -> /usr/i586-mingw32msvc/bin/sdl-config)
which allows cross compilations without PATH modifications.

Without the patch, configure and make (which calls configure) typically
need a non-standard PATH. Failing to set this special PATH results in
broken builds.
