The audio device's major/minor numbers haven't changed in a long time,
but you may want to 'cd /dev; sh MAKEDEV audio' and see if that helps.

Another thing to try is to add the line

options		AUDIO_DEBUG

to your kernel config, then reconfigure and rebuild your kernel.
You should then see a message something like

audio: device 0 attached

immediately after the 'sb0 at isa0...' message.  If you don't, then
it's a bug in the SB driver.  If you do, then it's a bug in the audio
driver.  Use DDB to enable the debugging printfs and dig in. :-/
