The best thing I have done so far is to let ./configure handle guessing it. 
 As long as you setup your ALSA distribution to use OSS emulation (by using 
their OSS mixer module), you should be fine.  Once you have everything 
compiled, enter into the "sound server" setup, which is in "preferences" -> 
"sound".  Change the server from whatever it was to alsa.  Sound should now 
work.  If it doesn't, you probably installed ALSA wrong, forgot to make the 
sound devices, or have the wrong permissions on the devices.


PS.  Use the 0.5.x series ALSA drivers
