Hi Moritz,

As indicated by Cyril in #600655, this seems to be caused
by a limitation in libsalsa emulation layer.  It's possible that
its packages were installed in the buildd, causing build

A quick glance at the source suggests that ALSA is
only used for midi sound playback, and that
timidity/oss is a viable alternative.  If that's the case
would you please add:

Build-Conflicts: liboss-salsa-dev

to debian/control?
