Actually, I discovered that the Thinkpad has a hardware mixer (controlled by three volume buttons above the keyboard) that FreeBSD doesn't control. Apparently I had accidentally muted this mixer. Once I unmuted it, my sound returned. Silly thing not to notice before asking the list, but no harm done I suppose.
