FreeBSD-6-BETA3 broken with ports/audio/aureal-kmod; ports/graphics/linux_dri not working.

I have recently upgraded my 5.4-STABLE system to the new FreeBSD-6 line, of 

FreeBSD prokreation 6.0-BETA3 FreeBSD 6.0-BETA3 #3: Sat Aug 27 19:16:28 CEST 
2005     root at prokreation:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/PROKREATION  i386

I indeed have to say great job - the system is as snappy as ever, however, I 
have a few errors that i would believe need fixing before -RELEASE is tagged 

Firstly, I cannot seem to be able to build my aureal kld to play any sound. I 
believe the problem is quite trivial, however, I do not know FreeBSD sources 
well enough to track the error and fix it.

Also, the linux_dri port is utterly broken on FreeBSD-6 when using radeon 

Due to the late improvements by anholt towards a better radeon card support 
for dri, the drm kernel module radeon.ko /in my case, built into the kernel/ 
no longer works with terribly old dri libs.

The solution I would best see here is bumping emulators/linux_base-suse-9.3 as 
default linux compat, updating the unhappy ports to play nicely with such an 
upgrade, and using xorg-dri drivers for linux_dri compatible with the 
xorg-libs avaliable with emulators/linux_base-suse-9.3.

I would gladly help doing that, as I am a little more familiar with ports 
hacking rather than kernel hacking - far from perfect with it tho ;-)

Below follows the aureal-kmod build log. I have filed a pr about it, yet not 
recieved a confirmation yet with the number to track down, but I will keep it 
up to date :-)
