Building without SDL2

Hi all. Due to system constraints, I am unable to put the SDL2 package on my Redhat system (SDL2 isn’t available for RH6, but it is on RH7) for building. Is there a way around this? I am not using a Joystick, and it appears from the release file that this is why it’s required.

Also, I’m being forced into 2.0.25 for my current project. I’ve built this on a few systems, etc, but the system I’m being required to use has the above issue.
