I wouldn't regard it as a bug. FreeBSD doesn't actually use OSS. It uses OSS compatible ioctls. There may be some common macro between the two that could be checked. When I figured out why the configure script was failing, it was late and I was out of patience.
I really don't know much about doing cross-platform configuration. I'll look for a more graceful way of doing it before I post a fix on the swiki.
This was just an expedient. I posted it here because I'm not the only one struggling to get sound on FreeBSD. A Google search yielded a bunch of people asking the same questions I had with no answers.
