First things first: you're running on an Intel machine with Snow Leopard/10.6, correct?  If not, what OS?  Which version of Xcode do you have installed?  I don't know if any of this has ever been established.

If you've installed OpenAL supprot from the Creative-provided OpenAL_Installer_OSX.dmg... you may have killed your OpenAL framework.  Can you install/reinstall the latest Xcode/developer tools that runs on your OS?

As far as MacPorts, it's not affiliated with Wine in any way, but it doesn't appear that the "openal" port has a universal variant.  You may be able to force install a 32-bit version, but if you have problems with this, you'll need to ping the MacPorts folks.  This is essentially a "recursive force upgrade" that causes a 32-bit OpenAL (and all dependents) to be rebuilt; it may or may not work and may completely destroy your MacPorts packages:

arch -i386 sudo port -Rfuv openal

That's about all the MacPorts support we'll ever offer, I believe.  Good luck.
