webcamd and snd_uaudio

Sometime recently, webcamd apparently became dependent on snd_uaudio.  
This is a real pain seeing as I often prefer to use OSSv4.  When both 
snd_uaudio and the OSSv4 kernel modules are loaded, the kernel panics.  
I think preventing webcamd from loading snd_uaudio might be as simple as 
editing the webcamd rc script, but that doesn't appear to be the case.  
In an effort to prevent snd_audio from loading, I even moved the module 
out of /boot/kernel/ but that just causes webcamd to segfault when it 
tries to start.

Is there anyway to remove this dependency?
