I commited the ALSA backend. I removed the migration/preferences stuff
because I disagree with it, but I changed the defaults and tweaked the
makefiles to isntall in the correct place.

It appears to work for me! I get an exception and I'll track it down
hopefully, but check if what's in the repo works with you.
It does, as expected :o)
It plays fine.. I do sometimes an error of "broken pipe" which recoers and playing continues. When swhiching songs for example.

Actually, with ALSA and OSS we are quite "served" as far as backends go.
How about your *BSD systems ?
OSS needs that small patch to compile on NetBSD and i am sure if tweaking ioctl() that way is correct. It doensì't play. I haven't tested libao backend yet.

FreeBSD8+gcc works, FreeBSD9+clang compiles, doesn't start.

OpenBSD plays with OSS but not with sndio and has a very high CPU usage.

I'll write a summary email later.


By the way, could you apply the following patch ? The referenced
directories aren't there and this breaks the 'clean' and 'distclean'
