Missing SDL_* libraries lead to rather useless messages

Bug Description

Today I helped a friend set up Widelands on a rather naked system.
Some SDL_* accessory packages (mixer, net, ttf, gfx) were missing, but CMake only issued warnings about some variables which could be rather annoying for new users.

Reason is that some of the (stock) FindSDL_*.cmake scripts don't include the StandardNotFoundHandler. This can't be fixed by Widelands.
So we should throw our own (meaningful) error instead.
