Preliminary w/o all the details ...

Package: PulseAudio
URL: www.pulseaudio.org
Version: 0.9.22
DL: http://0pointer.de/lennart/projects/pulseaudio/pulseaudio-0.9.22.tar.gz
Requirements: alsa-lib-1.0.17, libsamplerate, libsndfile-1.0.8,
libatomic_ops-1.2, libspeex, libgdbm, xorg-7.5, glib-2.0, jack,
gconf-2.0, dbus-glib-0.7.0

alsa-lib is in blfs
libsndfile isn't
libsamplerate isn't
libatomic_ops is in blfs
libspeex is just speex in blfs
gdbm is in base LFS
xorg is in blfs
glib 2 is in blfs
jack is not in blfs and can be considered very optional
gconf is in blfs
dbus-glib is in blfs

libsndfile and libsamplerate are both easy to install.  Libsamplerate
is more commonly known as Secret Rabbit Code.


It requires libsndfile to be installed first.


Both are basically the ./configure --prefix=/usr && make -j3 && make install

Pulse is built in a similar way thought it helps to read what's
detected after running configure to make sure all the packages were
actually detected.
