Hmm ok, I'll add a NOT_FOR_ARCH / ONLY_FOR_ARCH to the port.

The wine approach.

I've replaced this with USE_OPENAL=yes in my local copy of the Makefile, as well
using the DOCSDIR and DATADIR macros. I'll change the port to also respect the
above flags.

Note that "openal-config" is replaced by "pkg-config openal", I've
also patched that.
