I don't know of a search utility, but I do know where libSDL-1.1.so.7 went.
In version 1.2.9xxx of /usr/ports/devel/sdl12 one of the installed files was
/usr/local/lib/libSDL-1.1.so.7 . However, as of versions 1.2.11xxx
this guy is replaced by /usr/local/lib/libSDL.so.11 .
Since you have a precompiled binary of whatever, you might try 2 things.
1. cd /usr/local/lib/
ln -s libSDL.so.11 libSDL-1.1.so.7
If you are lucky, the program will run anyway.
2. If you are not lucky, investigate /usr/ports/sysutils/portdowngrade.
It will help in downgrading to a version of sdl12 with the lib you need
without too much pain. (any of the 1.2.9 versions, I'm pretty sure).
