Yes, my next task is to rebuild with that option.  I'll make as modules
as you do, seems sensible.

tim at debian:~$ ls -l /dev/dsp
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            9 Feb 25 15:56 /dev/dsp ->
/dev/dsp0
tim at debian:~$ ls -l /dev/dsp0
crw-rw----    1 root     audio     14,   3 Feb 25 15:56 /dev/dsp0

Thanks, Tim
