 There is no need for you to do so. The problem is that openal is
misbehaving a fair bit here: It calls destructor routines even if
constructor hasn't been called and thus a plain "main(){}" segfaults
when linked against -lopenal (this in fact is the problem why
supertuxkart and also hugs98 don't compile on powerpc currently).

 I am in contact with someone more closely invovled with upstream and
who is preparing a patch for openal for this issue. pabs is also on it
together with me, so we should have an openal-soft update ready
hopefully within the next few days, with the added addition to be able
to ask for freeze exception for it directly instead of having to mail
around and explain the issue via mail, which is known to become tedious
in some areas.

 So long for the time being,
