copying the missing sdl _driver.so from another package to /usr/lib/erlang/lib/esdl-0.94.1025/priv/ resolved the issue for me.

Appears to be a problem with libsdl-erlang. I am uploading a fixed (albeit newer) version of libsdl-erlang. Once that hits the archive I will rebuild wings with it. Thank you.
