I am currently successfully running alsa-lib 1.0.22 with oss plugins on
a non-linux box. The advantage is that programs written to use libasound

I just tried to update alsa-lib, and see that now alsa-lib directly
includes headers like linux/types.h, and all protection, such as

  #if defined(LINUX) || defined(__LINUX__) || defined(__linux__)

has been removed. This means that compilation on non-linux is
essentially impossible.

Is it that there is now a different way of obtaining that alsa lib
front end / oss back end layer?
