Linux Realplayer esound support and dependencies

Having recently started to use the native esound daemon (esound-0.2.29) on
my up-to-date -STABLE x86 box, attempting to start realplayer
(linux-realplayer-8.cs2_3) gives an unsurprising error about the audio
device being in use.

Digging through the realplayer config I noticed the esound support and
turned it to see what it would do and found it did nothing, though it was
trying to find libesd.

After catching and killing a few wild geese, I installed the linux version
of esound (linux-esound-0.2.22_2) and its missing libaudiofile dependency
(linux-libaudiofile-0.1.11_2) and everything works automagically.

Would it be a good idea to make linux-esound a dependency of
linux-realplayer, perhaps optionally?

Could someone fix the linux-libaudiofile dependency?

Patches below. Let me know if you want me to file PRs.
