I'm running NetBSD-current 4.99.35 and just installed Skype
from pkgsrc.  But Skype and can't make calls.  I can successfully
log in, see my contacts.  But when trying to call the echo123
service Skype instead shows an error message:

    Call Failed: Problem with Audio Playback

The Skype options panel doesn't allow specifying anything
for the audio.

/emul/linux/dev/{dsp,audio,sound,...} all exist.  I've looked
through the results of ktrace, but it's full of checks for
/dev/snd/controlCxxx where xxx are tried in sequence from 0 to 99.

Am I missing something?
