During the client's compilation of alsa-lib (which I have no control over), they did not specify where the module directory should be at. In fact, they're using 1.0.13 where there isn't a configure option to specify the module directory  (this was added 1.0.14?). Since this is an embedded project, due to cross compilation, alsa-lib is currently looking at some host directory that does not exist on the target to search for the libasound_module_pcm_xxx.so files. What's worse is that seems like it is dependent on where the client decides to build the RFS (say from /home/joe/project/xxx, but then later /home/bill/project/yyy) -- the alsa-lib module directory could change.

Please search the list archives for "cross compiling" - I had the
exact same problem last year.  Don't remember exactly how I solved it,
but it's in there somewhere.
