Comment(by Krejzi):

 I can't confirm any of these.

 VLC works just fine with "Pulseaudio" selected in audio preferences. It
 even builds flawlessly against pulseaudio 3.0

 Mplayer also does fine with -ao pulse.

 Opening audio decoder: [mpg123] MPEG 1.0/2.0/2.5 layers I, II, III
 AUDIO: 44100 Hz, 2 ch, s16le, 320.0 kbit/22.68% (ratio: 40000->176400)
 Selected audio codec: [mpg123] afm: mpg123 (MPEG 1.0/2.0/2.5 layers I, II,
 AO: [pulse] 44100Hz 2ch s16le (2 bytes per sample)
 Video: no video
 Starting playback...
 A:  10.3 (10.2) of 276.0 (04:36.0)  0.7%

 I have .asoundrc that redirects alsa output through pulse and it doesn't
 pose me any problem. Even system sounds in KDE work.

 $ cat ~/.asoundrc
 pcm.pulse {
     type pulse
 ctl.pulse {
     type pulse
 pcm.!default {
     type pulse
 ctl.!default {
     type pulse

 I've built it (upgraded from 2.1) today using same instructions as in BLFS

 Even multilib version works with Skype and Wine using Pulseaudio via 32bit
 Alsa Plugins.
