The whole CVS-tree is a bit of a mess right now, and will continue to be
until I get the internal plugin support properly finished. Anyway, I got
it to compile on my other machine by doing the following:

cd [cvsroot]
cvs co sound/ecasound/libecasound/plugins
cd sound/ecasound
sh cvscompile

Now, "ls -la libecasound/plugins/Makefile*" outputs:

Yes, this is true. I'm not sure what actually is broken. 8bit/mono works,
so there's probably some frames<->bytes related problems in the ecasound
code. Unfortunately I don't have time to fix this just now. I'll try to
find some time.

PS Note that in the current CVS, all ALSA, audiofile and aRts releted
   code is relocated to 'libecasound/plugins'. These source file
   are compiled as dynamic libraries (for instance,
   and are loaded dynamically at runtime. The benefit we get from this,
   is that I can distribute binaries compiled with all the plugins and
   people can run them even though they don't have the required
   libraries (libaudiofile, libasound, libartsc). This is, IMHO, very
