I dislike pulseaudio for both architectural and performance reasons,
so I adopted the option outlined in the above pkgsrc-bugs link and it
did allow me to play audio in Firefox 41 without pulseaudio.

Someone pointed me to Jack audio as a good alternative to Pulseaudio,
so I looked and found the following bugzilla entry where there is
discussion of using Jack audio as a backend:

I see that there is a pkgsrc package for Jack, so maybe I'll explore
integrating it into Firefox if I have time.  Or has someone already
gotten this to work?
