SDL Alsa linking problems

I can’t link any programs with the current CVS version of SDL. The Alsa
module calls a procedure named “snd_pcm_open_preferred” that cannot be
resolved. I’m running SuSE 7.0, which comes with Alsa 0.5.8 . But even
Alsa 0.5.10 , which seems to be the most recent version, doesn’t have
such a function.

The 1.1.7 tarball from libsdl.org runs fine.

Bye,
