Guys..... Instead of discussing things you don't know enough about, you could of course just try it. I did.
It compiles out-of-the-box (after installing SDL-dev and SDL_sound-dev) on my amd64 box. Runs great.
It compiles out-of-the-box (after installing, ... you know the drill) on my raspberry pi.
The screen I have here is only 320x200 and the video output is quite crappy. I expect it to be a lot better on something not-composite-video and on something with proper resolution.
I didn't test the audio output, as I don't have any audio devices installed on this 'pi.
[update] I have a headphone nearby. I tested the audio. It works...
