Somehow you got the truly ancient OSS audio support! Do you have ALSA or Jack? I don't know anything about Debian, but surely they use ALSA? Or maybe pulseaudio? I'd try ./configure --with-alsa and try to find the error message related to it in config.log. If that is a dead-end, I'd try ./configure --with-pulseaudio but maybe that's a Fedora program.
