Do you have alsa headers installed at all with you core/base OS? 
(Installed with slackware?)

If not, you may want to install them.

Also, alsa-lib is in pkgsrc. (I have used it a lot, but may be out of date 
now.) If you use that, then adjust the xmms Makefile to also have:
.include "../../wip/alsa-lib/"
