Ah! i didn't stop to think of that...

Since you already have esound compiled from source, you may just want to
grab the potato sources and recompile them against glibc 2.0.

Latest in potato is 0.2.10 if you feel like updating.
/debian/dists/potato/main/source/sound/

An advantage of compiling with the Debian diffs is that it'll generate a
deb you can install.  

In order to compile from Debian sources, you'll need the dpgk-dev package,
and the -dev packages for whatever libraries are required. You also need
the orig sources, the diffs, and the dsc from your Debian mirror.

[directions paraphrased from a README from the pine sources packages]
dpkg-source -x foo_v-d.dsc will then unpack the source and automatically
apply the patches. Then, cd to the "foo" directory and execute
debian/rules binary. .deb files will be created for you, which you can
then install with dpkg.

You can use thes options when you invoke ./configure
  --with-esd-prefix=PFX         Prefix where ESD is installed
  --with-esd-exec-prefix=PFX    Exec prefix where ESD is installed

You could also add the proper path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
