apologies if this is the wrong list feel free to bounce it to where  
ever it should go.

Im trying to build KDE head on netbsd 4.99.72. I have successfully  
built kdelibs, kdepimlibs and kdebase-workspace.

On attempting to configure kdebase-runtime it complains that ALSA is  
not installed and will not continue. Looking at the list of  
requirements ALSA is marked as optional.  Further up i noticed it  
complaining that pulse audio was not installed, i dont know if that is  

Does anyone have any ideas why it thinks ALSA is required when none of  
the other sources do?

Any help debugging this is very welcomed.
