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.
