missing /dev/sequencer and /dev/midi under 5.4

I'm running FreeBSD 5.4 with a custom kernel on a Dell Inspiron 6000 - the
Dell website only says "SoundBlaster compatible" for the sound card.
Normal sound stuff works fine (though I can't hear the cd player, actually,
now that I think of it...) but midi doesn't work: kmidi complains
that /dev/sequencer is busy, but actually it doesn't exist, and neither
I guess I need to enable midi in the kernel, but what device / options?
all give me "unknown device" errors at compile time: here's the relevent
section of my kernel config file:
device sound # generic sound driver: these added...
I'm sure I don't need all this stuff in there, but I haven't got round to
experimenting with what I can take out. Could that be my problem?
Thanks in anticipation for your help...
