[PD] configure --enable-alsa not enabling alsa

It turns out that --enable-alsa still does disable alsa. ./configure 
without the alsa flag gives two lines that weren't there when I did use 
the alsa flag:

yes ... alsa is... yes
checking for snd_pcm_info in -lasound... yes

Dunno if this is specific to my system or not, but there you go. It 
works now. Thanks!

a) do you have the alsa-headers installed (libasound2-dev, alsa-devel or
whatever) ?
b) there used to be a bug in the configure-script (i think), which
disabled alsa when enabling it, which should have been fixed; however,
just run "./configure" (without enabling explicitly) and it should
auto-detect whether it should use alsa.
