The soundcard.h problem is solved very easily in ports that do something
like this:

#ifdef __FreeBSD__
#include <machine/soundcard.h>
#include <sys/soundcard.h>

just change the

#ifdef __FreeBSD__


#if __FreeBSD__ <= 4

All that happened was that a symlink that was present before from
sys/soundcard.h to machine/soundcard.h (that had been there for close to 2
years) was removed. prior to that it was at machine/soundcard.h? I'm not
