sorry for being so quiet once again, I was busy setting up a FreeBSD

... we definitively need thread support and FreeBSD doesn't have that (for
now) in their XFree 4.x port :-((

could we have some audio-driver auto-detection that does this
automagically? I mean, try alsa first, fall back to oss and finally try
the null plugin of all other possibilites fail?
I think this order makes sense since it'll prevent people from accidently
using alsa's oss emulation.
