PulseAudio is a user space sound server that runs above OSS (or other
low level sound architectures of course, but that's OSS if we stay
within FreeBSD domain).

I'm not really sure what are you trying to achieve as Squeak, as I
understand it, is a programming language, so I don't see much connection
there. But if it already supports OSS output somehow (well, everything
does), you can use it directly over FreeBSD's native OSS (or alternately
4Front's OSS if you prefer that) without any PulseAudio interaction. But
then again, I find your question somewhat confusing and I might not be
getting it right, so could you please elaborate a bit on your goals?
