That's what I found last week; qemu 1.3.1 did not get through the
install. AIUI we think this is a qemu problem, and IIRC it has

I don't know.

If you aren't using gnome, set PKG_OPTIONS.SDL=-pulseaudio and it will
help a lot with that.
I think it's also possible to cut back the amount of useless drivel
pulseaudio depends on.
