At the end, the configure script prints out whether or not it enabled
ALSA. Did the print out say that ALSA was enabled?
The configure script checks for the ALSA library include file
(alsa/asoundlib.h) and the ALSA library (libasound). If they are not
installed on your system, then the configure script will disable ALSA
sound. Are these files installed on your system?
