Can this be done with an environment variable or must I locate and edit 
some makefile?

I took the actions advised!  They don't fix the problem.  It isn't fixed 
because I don't know how in hades to fix it!  Innocently, I thought 
building a package would be a routine exercise.

I'm sorry if I've offended.  I *have* taken the advice I've been given.  If 
you glance at the quoted "configure" options, I removed the 
"--with-sound=native,noesd" but the script still finds some header that 
screws it up.  I suppose what I need to do is remove the headers completely?!!
