Is this in Solaris ?, if so you wiould have to have OSS installed and even 
then I am not sure it would work properly. Investigating audio on Solaris I 
found that ACM was not happy unless the audio driver was available and 
installed properly otherwise it returns Device Busy. I  do have a working 
Waveout Solution for native Solaris based on my libaudioio project.  I've not 
tackled Direct Sound or Wavein yet. As yet this solution is not integrated 
with Wines Build environment so you can't set it up with configure. If you 
are prepared to grub through the relevant mods I can send you a patch kit.

Whoever is playing with Winsock can you please ensure that the solutions you 
come up with are not linux centric. There is a lot of code in there that does 
not run on solaris because it grubs around in PROC getting TCP structures. I 
have made a bit of a start in cleaning this up, Here it is, absolutely 
untested non working code, but a start nevertheless, I put this into a 
separate file  and link it with winsock and  wsock32  from a common source, 
these functions replace the helper functions of similar name in the two dll
