Here's what it returns building as normal user with builddir as
$HOME/xfce and installation directory of $HOME/local on Slackware
12.0.  I know the vanilla sources will build, because I've already
got it packaged for 12.0, and Pat's got a -current build ready too.

This is with the alsa option checked...
