I've committed my fixes for artsd on -current.

I have used noatun to play mp3s for a long time on 1.6.x. I have not seen any
other reports of problems on 1.6.x. Starting artsd in a shell and logging the
output might help shed some light on the problem.
I think that packages such as mplayer and xmms have had arts support explicity
disabled by whoever pkg'ed them.
