Yep, I chatted with Nille in IRC and confirmed these two issues - that
pygame has deps that are not listed and that the messages spit out by
pygame for these missing deps are not displayed in sbopkg for some
reason -- not being sent to stdout/stderr?  Anyway, we'll take a look at
this for sbopkg and see if it's something we can work around or adddress
in sbopkg.  In the meantime, if the deps can be listed in the README
then this problem might be alleviated somewhat.
