Apologies if this should have been a part of #360.

Running e.g. `AbstractSound bachFugue play` resulted in no sound. Other sound-playing applications on the system were working fine.

The VM said `sound: /dev/dsp: No such file or directory`

`--help` mentioned the following -
vm-sound-ALSA tryLoading cogspur/lib/squeak/5.0-202003021730/vm-sound-ALSA.so: dlopen: cogspur/lib/squeak/5.0-202003021730/vm-sound-ALSA.so: undefined symbol: snd_mixer_selem_is_active

Running with -vm-sound-pulse gave no errors but I still got no sound.

OS - `Linux 5.5.0-1-686 #1 SMP Debian 5.5.13-2 (2020-03-30) i686 GNU/Linux`
