Icculus has a slightly dated version of the Alsa sound
driver I've written for Quetoo. You could try
building that by editing the Icculus Makefile. Even
better, you could grab the latest snd_sdl.c and
snd_alsa.c from Quetoo and merge them to the Icculus
trunk. Both recieved a bit of attention a few months
ago, and are in what I would consider very good shape
Quetoo's source can be browsed here:
