Just ran into this getting MythTV running on Gentoo. In ALSA, it seems the new soundblaster cards don't use the emu10k1 driver, they use the ca0106 driver. Don't know if this exists for FreeBSD or not. In my case, the ca0106 driver produced static and a hint of something that sounded like sound. I gave up, and stole an older soundblaster from another system I had.
