To me it seems that you are running a binary version of SDL that expects
that DGA X extension to be present in your system, which it is not.

I have DGA enabled;
[madsdyd@ripley madsdyd]$ xdpyinfo | grep -i dga
[madsdyd@ripley madsdyd]$

However, DGA is not very well supported on my system, and I do not use it
with SDL.

Try installing the SDL packages that came with your system, then compile
the demos.
