Ok. My recollection was that we should not indiscriminately warn about
missing libraries which is why I targeted just some of them. Ok, maybe
ICU should not have been on the list (certainly Shachar would
disagree<g>), but a system that has a non-functional OSS or Alsa driver
probably won't have sound which I see as a significant limitation,
especially with all the gaming development we see these days.
Maybe a check that there is at least one functional sound system would
if test "$ac_cv_c_opensoundsystem" = "no" -a -z "$ALSALIBS" -a \
-z "$ARTSC_LIBS" -a -z "$NASLIBS" -a -z "$AUDIOIOLIBS"
echo "*** No sound system was found. Windows applications will be silent."
But I personally don't mind checking the configure log so I don't care
much one way or another.
