Bug#657117: pulseaudio: FTBFS on armel due to linking nonexistent volume library

Package: pulseaudio
Version: 1.1-2
Severity: important

1.1-2 doesn't build on ARM (https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=pulseaudio&arch=armel&ver=1.1-2&stamp=1322258208) due to a failed attempt to link an arm-specific volume lib.  The package builds and plays audio just fine without it.  ARM is stuck on 1.0 as a result, which is especially aggravating since an unintended upstream dependency on X11+dbus in 1.0 prevents its use on systems without X running, and ARM machines are often headless.

Patch attached.
