In this message, Gene, you state that one should not use the Alsa 
option in the Makefile.  From the Makefile, I gather that it will 
access Alsa through the OSS compatibility modules.  When I boot my 
system, I receive two errors pertaining to the loading of OSS 
drivers.  I have a kernel and did not compile OSS in with 
it.  Is this an issue or should Speak Freely still function?
