I had have trouble to get sound working under freebsd 8.1 amd64 arch. So i decide to dig in wine code and I create a simple "proof of concept" patch to get work my sound card. 
********* SND STAT ********FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 64bit 2009061500/amd64)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <HDA Realtek ALC272 PCM #0 Analog> (play/rec) default <- This is my primary snd
pcm1: <HDA Realtek ALC272 PCM #1 Digital> (play)
pcm2: <HDA NVidia (Unknown) PCM #0 DisplayPort> (play)
pcm3: <HDA NVidia (Unknown) PCM #0 DisplayPort> (play)
pcm4: <HDA NVidia (Unknown) PCM #0 DisplayPort> (play)
pcm5: <HDA NVidia (Unknown) PCM #0 DisplayPort> (play)

Patch to get sound from wine ( which is compiled in /compat/i386 ).

I don't know what exactly /dev/dsp device is create with other snd drivers, but in my case it is /dev/dsp0.0.
To get fully work 6 wave_drv channels, i set some sysctls:
sysctl dev.pcm.0.play.vchans=6
sysctl dev.pcm.0.rec.vchans=6
sysctl hw.snd.maxautovchans=6

I think this is workaround for problems with audio under Linux, but in case of FreeBSD it is clear, so autodetection should be possible in this respect.

Sorry for my english.
