This didn't fix the issue (It's not working in msys/mingw either). The 
reason is that SDLMAIN_FOUND is never defined by CMake.
I don't know where Flase.Genesis got it from (It was added in rev 
7b8f3209afde), but if you check the SDL finder module file in CMake's 
folder (/usr/share/cmake2.x/Modules/FindSDL.cmake in Linux) it only 
defines SDL_FOUND plus the variables with the system library path if found.

For the purpose of the code in the CMake script for Aquaria, using only 
"if(NOT SDL_FOUND)" is more than enough and works in every case. There's 
no need to check anything else.
