Oh, I can no idea the images used SDL1, because they're totally opaque
to our git repo :-( Just an external blob with no info about how they
were built. Preferrably we'd at least have a manifest for their contents
in git, even better if there's something to automate building them.

According to repology.org/metapackage/sdl2/versions all the *BSDs have
SDL2 available to use at least.

Daniel
