No, -alsa is in for several versions.

This looks like -alsa is missing from your version of Pd. Does 
 $ ldd /usr/bin/pd 
include something like:
 libasound.so.2 => /usr/lib/libasound.so.2 (0x4002d000)
Do you run the official version from Miller's site or the CVS version?
I'm not sure, if ALSA is still enable in Pd-MSP. I run the CVS
version almost everytime.

It might also be, that although you did provide --enable-alsa to
configure, it didn't get found. Maybe you don't have the header files
for libasound installed. They normally come with a package ending in
"-dev" or "-devel" and include above all the directory
