Thanks for the clues. I attempted to compile a recent snapshot of
under Debian unstable, by overwriting the unpacked Debian source tarball.
The catch is that the Debian build information set up by
(which is stored in /etc/alsa/alsa-source.conf)
is out of sync with the Mercurial snapshot and by compiling "all" ALSA
drivers, I get the ALSA pcspkr driver installed, which causes some problems.
I'd probably need to hack /etc/alsa/alsa-source.conf based on the
drivers supported by the Mercurial snapshot *minus* pcspkr to build an
alsa-driver .deb based on the Mercurial snapshot.
