SDL can run on many different backends - I know that as recently as 1.2.9,
SDL happily ran on the X11 backend without GLX. And since SDL works
on such non-3D environments such as DirectFB and the fbcon (and a blast from
my past, good ol' nano-X), I'm assuming that whatever extensions OpenGL
adds to the X11 backend are non-essential.
AFAIK - SDL should "just work" on the Geode.
