Actually I did not find any libpulse or libopenal library on my Solaris
10u5 or Solaris 10 Companion DVDs. So they are both non-standard on this
platform, meaning that unless Wine ships with them, then users of these
platforms would have no sound.
Concerning FreeBSD 7.0, neither are available as a package but both are
available as a port. So FreeBSD users are unlikely to have them
preinstalled but at least they have a reasonably easy and _standard_ way
of installing them.
