I (used to *) have alsa working with squeak with those same contortions. I
had a nice little /etc/alsafix.sh script called by /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
/bin/echo "Setting alsa junk"

default muting. After 2 days of fighting rc2, I just went with OSS-Free.
I'll only go back when it actually supports software mixing (i.e. never).
