Yes. The OBS builds against the standard and update repositories for Fedora, Debian, and Ubuntu, plus universe for Ubuntu. If Faudio is now a build dependency, the WineHQ packages will not have Xaudio support until the distros supply whatever packages are needed.

I have no intention of getting into the business of building Wine's dependencies in addition to the WineHQ packages. If someone else wants to take that on, I'm happy to cooperate.
