Looks to me that 'cpan install SDL' should work ok. Where does that come undone for you ?
On my Strawberry perl-5.16.0, I actually installed Alien::SDL manually ('perl build.pl', 'perl build', 'perl build test', 'perl build install') then installed the Tie::Simple and Test::Most dependency chains ('cpan install Tie-Simple', 'cpan install Test-Most') and then manually built SDL.
But the way it all worked suggested to me that I could have simply run 'cpan install SDL'. (I didn't do that because I was having trouble with my 'cpan install' and didn't work out how to fix it until I was half way thru with the manual installs.)
The SDL test suite concluded with:
Test Summary Report
t\core.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 28 Failed: 0)
TODO passed: 21-22
t\core_video.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 110 Failed: 0)
TODO passed: 57, 59
t\sdlx_fps.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 13 Failed: 2)
Failed tests: 6, 11
Non-zero exit status: 2
Files=59, Tests=3827, 287 wallclock secs ( 1.75 usr + 0.58 sys = 2.3
Failed 1/59 test programs. 2/3827 subtests failed.
Of course, those failing tests will mean that you have to use force with the cpan install if you actually want it to be installed.
