And for a graphical version, there's gmix, and I'm sure others.

FYI, to make the gnome mixer applet control the internal and external speakers, you
can apply the attached patch to gnome-core.  It seems this is useful for a lot of
Powermacs (and Netwinders?), which have decent sound from internal speakers; but not
so useful for PCs, whose dreadful internal speakers are used only for beeps. :-)
Nonetheless, I've submitted it to the BTS as a wishlist bug.

When potato is released, I'll put up a webpage with this and other patches that help
stuff work better on PPC and ARM (like Kerberos!).
