Apologies if this should have gone to alsa-user instead, but I've
just tried compiling alsa-utils- on a Debian testing amd64 system,
and configure gave a list of errors related to CoreFoundation.
There were several similar to this in config.log:

configure:4589: checking for CFPreferencesCopyAppValue
configure:4607: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c  -Wl,-framework -Wl,CoreFoundation >&5
conftest.c:11:42: fatal error: CoreFoundation/CFPreferences.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

I ran ./configure with default settings. 
Kernel is 3.2.1 compiled for k8 from kernel.org source.
alsa-lib- compiled and installed sucessfully.

Possibly a stupid question, but why is it checking for CoreFoundation
on a Linux system?
