New BennuGD port for Dreamcast

Indiket from dreamcast.es has made a new BennuGD port version for the Sega Dreamcast (specifically KOS 2.X and SDL), based on Colombians Developers' port, which had already some years.

This new build is compatible with KOS 2.x, and has been build with SDL 1.2.13, SDL_Mixer 1.2.12, libpng 1.6.18 and freetype 2.6. It plays MOD music again (without any need of mod_dream), and it has support for 2 pads. Additionaly, it includes the extra "mod_ttf" for free.
