In such case try to use configure without this flags, let configure to
find the right places.

Ok, but you didn't tell it before ;) Only what I wanted to say is do not
compile separate alsa package with 2.5.xx or 2.6 kernel.

Yes, you have to use the same compiler (2.95.3 - maybe it's possible to
use different compiler, but use the same for all, kernel and modules).
Other compilers use little bit different structures and the code is
incompatible (I know what I'm talking about) . Maybe here is the point.
(I have no idea how are the variables from Kernel .config propagated to
alsa sources, know anybody this?)
