[sdlsound] SDL_sound Framework

I finally found some time to play with XCode 4, and much to my surprise 
Spotlight found ˜/Library/Frameworks/SDL_sound.framework on my drive 
(don't ask me how it got there).

Apparently it's identical to the one available from


Acoording to the headers it's based on SDL_sound-1.0.1, but I'm not sure 
what modules are enabled (haven't checked yet).

Does anybody have a working SDL_sound framework for 1.0.3 with mikmod 
(and maybe ogg & smpeg) support? Ideally I'd like to support 10.4 up on 
both PowerPC and Intel architectures.

How does SDL_sound/SDL compare to the alternatives (CoreAudio / OpenAL / 
???) on each platform at the moment? Is it still worse persuing or would 
you just recommend I rewrite the SDL_sound relying code?

Thanks in advance for any information and opinions on the matter.
