Got it, too. It was the kded module. I disabled the check+message
macro_log_feature(HAVE_CURRENT_ALSA "ALSA" "current alsa-lib is needed for
dmix and virtual device listing" "http://www.alsa-project.org/" TRUE
Seeing that it's optional on Windows and Mac OS I hope it can be made
optional on Linux and other Unices, too.
