So the kernel now builds correctly with 'device sound' and 'device snd_hda'?
If not, what message does the kernel build yield?

Ok, the ALC889 on board is listed as supported by snd_hda(4).

BTW, have a look at the BUGS section of snd_hda(4). Maybe your problem
is related to this.

If loading the module works, have you tried adding snd_hda_load="YES" to
/boot/loader.conf, as per the manual page?
