Well, the build seems to be detecting the alsa library and include
files, nothing that I can see is failing, but yet snd is not built with
alsa. I finally gave up trying to find the real culprit and hacked my

is in progress and one preliminary test in fc3 indicates alsa is working

Thanks for the report!
