The Guide explains where portfiles live and how to apply patches to them:

You probably haven't set all the environment variables that MacPorts sets for you (CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, CXXFLAGS, LDFLAGS, etc.), so it doesn't know how to find the dependencies it needs (SDL in this case). It will be easier to just modify the portfile using the patch above.
