I've done some testing with your patch and OSS output seems to work 
nicely (as before). The native ALSA support is very unstable but it 
wasn't stable before your patch either so that's no loss. I'm looking 
forward to and will test more after David George's ALSA patch.

And for all Debian users out there:
apt-get install libsamplerate0 libsamplerate0-dev

May I ask why it needs to be a Myth lib? Wouldn't it be easier to get it 
via the official channels? Debian pkgs exist, you say it's in Gentoo and 
there are RPM:s too (don't know if they are "official" though).

Thanks for your work!
