Package downloaded from sourceforge here

‘./configure’ is fine but ‘make’ returns a problem.

That’s not really a “package”, it’s the source code… so dependencies won’t be resolved for you.

Try this:

sudo apt-get install libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev lua5.1 libpng3 liblua5.1-0-dev

Then try ./configure again.
