The ideal situation would be to build with the full functionality in
all cases, but that is difficult in this case as it would involve
providing a sun include file.

I would probably go with an 'audioplay' feature, which is on for non
Solaris platforms, otherwise set appropriately based on include file

It is annoying that the 'same' binary package built on two separate
Solaris boxes could have different functionality, but I don't see an
easy way around that.
