/dev/mixer is not present, nor are any other sound devices (except
sndstat; and a quick less -f sndstat shows no devices installed).
Attempting to play an mp3 via xmms fails (since /dev/dsp doesn't exist).
Were I running one of the older trees, I would say that I need to run sh
MAKEDEV snd0, but that seems to be gone from 5.x.

I would be interested in seeing precisely the lines you put into your
kernel regarding sound.

Unless there is some obvious thing I failed to do, I shall move my
question over to FreeBSD-mobile.

Thanks for the help.
