restoring alsa settings

I have alsa built into my 2.6.6 kernel. My problem is that I end up having
to run "alsactl restore" every time I reboot and I'm not sure why. I don't
have alsasound, which I think may be the script that took care of alsa
settings, but i looked at the one in the alsa package and I am not sure I
want to use that as it's calling modprobe, etc. and my alsa is built in. I
could put it in /etc/profile, but then I think it would try restoring
settings whenever there was a login and that could have unfortunate
consequences if I had been modifying my settings and then did a login to a
new console. Has anybody had this problem and if so, how did you fix it?
By the way, I don't have aumix on my system; for quite a while there was
some kind of bug at least in debian that allowed aumix to wipe out your
alsa settings; I remember that because there was a file I had to go in and
fix every time an upgrade included aumix. I think that got fixed, but I
don't have aumix anyway so that's not causing the problem.
