I'm trying to create a recipe to build libSDL, but I can't get the
licensing working. My .bb file contains:

LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://COPYING;md5=27818cd7fd83877a8e3ef82b82798ef4"
This is correct if the md5sum of COPYING is matching.

The source is downloaded in to tmp/ where I have a
libsdl-1.2.14-r0/SDL-1.2.14 directory that contains the COPYING file.
Since the source is created in a subdirectory, you need to reset the $S as:

S = "${WORKDIR}/SDL-${PV}"

${PV} is derived from the version of the recipe, you do not need to set it explicitly.

How should I specify this in LIC_FILES_CHKSUM ?
By setting S as above this will give the file:// root to be under the SDL-1.2.14 directory.
