Bug 255995: www/chromium: virtual_oss dependency remove or make optional
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=255995



--- Description ---
virtual_oss is not a runtime dependency for chromium. You need to configure it
before using, so it won't help you if it's installed with chromium. And it's
useless with ALSA(alsa-lib supports asound.conf) and PulseAudio, both can
select audio input/output.

Now it forced to be installed even if won't be used. virtual_oss dependency
should be removed or be optional and enabled by default with only SNDIO
backend.
