ekiga's audio input: dsp0.0?

I'm struggling with configuring Ekiga's (former gnomemeeting) to work with my 
microphone on FreeBSD-6.2-stable/amd64.

Ekiga has a "test settings" buttons (under the configuration druid), but it 
never plays back anything, that I say into the microphone (I tried two of 
those already).

Ekiga is trying to use /dev/dsp0.0. Is that the right device? Sound(4) says, 
dsprM.N should be used for input -- do I need to force ekiga into using that?

I know, the sound itself works -- including from ekiga -- because I can "test 
play" the various sounds, that come with the application.

Does anyone have ekiga working right on FreeBSD-6 (the port's maintainer has 
already told me, he no longer uses the software)? Thanks!


P.S. I use the snd_ich audio module. My /dev/sndstat reads:

FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <AMD-8111> at io 0xc800, 0xcc00 irq 17 bufsz 16384 kld snd_ich (1p/1r/2v 
channels duplex default)
