no.  what do you really gain by that anyway?  it's not like the
bt8x8 cards/bktr driver are so finely tuned that the minimal "delay"
or "interference" of running a wire to the soundcard is going to be
noticeable.  plus, NetBSD and OpenBSD use a different audio
architecture than FreeBSD, but bktr is pretty much the same across
the three.  there are some OS dependent bits, but adding a real
audio interface would add a whole lot more.
