--with-smpeg-prefix should be where SMPEG is installed, not where the
source is located. Build SMPEG, and do a make install.

SDL_sound should find SMPEG if it's installed in the default place (maybe
it should find it anyhow?). Unless it's in a really esoteric location, you
shouldn't need to specify --with-smpeg-prefix at all.

Then again, I've never tried. Let me know if that helps.
