Some things I noticed

The openal.c header:
+/* Written by Nick Burns (adger44 at hotmail.com) */
+/* while sick */
+/* now demacroized */

I think you should take the usual LGPL header that all the other  
files use.

With regard to the traces, I think the usual convention is to write  
all the function parameters in the trace. I don't know how well this  
can be done, and I imagine that it is quite some work and makes  
autogeneration with a script(like opengl) much harder.

If the openal headers are missing you use stubs that just print a  
fixme. This is fine, but I think the fixme's should be ERRs. The  
DllMain library in that case should maybe return FALSE in that case,  
so the app can deal with the lack of openal(or just fail)

I will give the new version another try with Jedi Academy :-)
