>From what I see, if I were to download and run the package on a GNU
System without sndio, there wouldn't be any clear error message
indicating what went wrong, just an error message indicating that
sndioctl has failed, right? (this is just from reading and using faulty
mental evaluation). If the package is to be added to GNU ELPA, you
should probably add a explicit error message (perhaps even at compile
time) to clarify what is missing, and that the package isn't mean to
work on this system.

The source looks good, I can add it to GNU ELPA if there are no objections.
