This is not an issue of the Genode build system or the NOVA kernel,
which got already built successful. It is an issue of your Linux
environment and Qemu instance.

The problem is clearly reported by your qemu-system-x86_64 binary:
"SDL support is disabled", which means your qemu binary was
compiled without libSDL support. Therefore, it is senseless to state
"-display sdl" on the command-line.

The solution is to install an appropriated qemu variant, e.g., using a
pre-compiled Qemu of your Linux distribution, or configure and compile Qemu
yourself with the libSDL headers and libraries in place.
