Bug#643839: Please build other audio backends than Pulse too

Package: lightspark
Version: 0.5.1-1
Severity: wishlist

Dear lightspark maintainers,
lightspark comes with several audio backends, please build at least one
more (SDL or OpenAL, though I hear, that an ALSA backend is in the works
too and that would be the best option from my POV). Pulse requires me to
install the pulseaudio daemon and lightspark would be the only
application (ok, plugin in my case) _needing_ pulse to have sound. As
pulse caused me trouble in the past, I'd like to avoid it.

I had just a quick glance at the build system, but I think the attached
patch should be enough to get the other backends built.

Kind regards,
Kai Wasserbäch
