Yes I confirm, SDL would be a usable solution. It has a simple
interface, and can be compiled to be almost as light as directly
accessing the frame buffer. The good thing is that the same code could
run on the desktop and the phone.

Maybe it would need some custom modifications to handle touch screen
device without needing tslib.

In my tests I always compiled statically because I wanted the
application to be self contained, but I guess you could easily add
lib/ into your rootfs, and then dynamically link your
application (then you probably don't even need to have the cross
compiled version of SDL on your host, you only need the headers.)

I'll be happy to participate in your effort ! So let me know if you have
any questions / tasks about SDL.
