Cross compiler not finding SDL package

i am cross compiling a small application which uses libsdl (SDL). I can compile using gcc but not able to with cross compiler. the cross compiler i am using is arm-arago-linux-gnueabi-gcc. error message come as

/arm-arago-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld: cannot find -lSDL
although libsdl1.2-dev is installed an i am getting pkg-config –cflags sdl output as -D_GNU_SOURCE=1 -D_REENTRANT -I/usr/include/SDL
and output of pkg-config –libs sdl as -lSDL.
Since my native compiler gcc is detecting SDL libs any idea why my cross compiler not able to find the libraries
