Cool. Just out of pure interest, what platform are you

Yeah, that was a byproduct of my attempts to merge in
javax.sound from tritonus.org.

Seems like we did pretty much the same thing. I left
out the AC_PREREQ since no features of 2.52 are used
which don't exist in earlier versions, so I figured it
would be pointless to bump up the requirements. I
separated the libs into several calls as I am no fan
of extended lines where they can be avoided ;) and it
still worked under 2.13.
The build machinery could use some work to ease
cross-compiling, go ahead if you'd like to improve it.
