What kernel options are suppose to work for ALSA on the mac?

nothing else.

I downloaded the CVS sources, compiled and installed.  I then found
a config file somewhere on the net, modified it and installed.
I don't have the mac up right now, but I think the error I get is
'Can't find module snd' or something like that.  I think that is a
kernel module. Right?  None of the sound options in the kernel
produce a module by that name AFAICT.  Maybe 'snd' is what the PC
version of the module is called?

When I bring the mac up I'll try to round up more information.
What would be the most helpful?
