Okay I figured out my own problem. 


This is specific to those who run 64bit OS.


for anyone who is getting register_sound_special_device error when
attempting to compile ALSA, on a 64 bit OS make sure your running your
configure properly.  Most likely your distro has ALSA libraries located in
the /usr/lib64 path not in /usr/lib and most likely the ld.so.conf is set to
look in /usr/lib64 before it searches /usr/lib which is the default for  the
configure script.  As a warning I'd not try to change that order especially
if you have built any 32bit compatibility drivers into /usr/lib


./configure -prefix=/usr/lib64


Although it wouldn't be a bad idea for the configure to detect that if
