At least one of the BSD VMs in tests/vm/ is still using SDL1.2.
I think we should update that VM before we drop SDL1.2 support.

(This is probably just a matter of updating the VM image that
is currently stored on patchew somewhere. It would also be
nice if our test infra here had a mechanism for regenerating
that VM image from scratch rather than just being "here's a
disk image blob...")
