What about mpg123, which is listed by BLFS as "requiring" alsa-oss? It's 
possible that BLFS is simply wrong, since mpg123's Makefile has a 
"linux-alsa" target. I'm trying to test this myself, but I'm having 
problems getting it to compile at all, possibly due to GCC 4.1/Glibc 2.4...

<command line>:1:13: warning: missing whitespace after the macro name
