thanks for this info. If you can point me to (the sources of) an audio
app that uses, and can be compiled without the above error on FreeBSD 5.x,
I might able to fix the Ecasound build system to handle this case.

Anyways, this info should be in the web search engine dbs by now.

Ok, I've fixed this today in CVS. The failed check is harmless in this
case. Btw, does compiling with "./configure --enable-largefile" work under
FreeBSD 5.x?
