ok - that's quite nonobvious from the build output

I suspected..

I am not proposing to make devel/pulseaudio hide anything - just to have
other software have default dependencies only on things that actually
build.  That's no worse than pre the pulseaudio import.

Thanks for the patch - I'll try it.  It's certainly far better if the
pulseaudio package can just be fixed.  But if it's not fixed soon, I
think we need to remove the options to the quarterly branch isn't
massively broken on the current release of NetBSD.
