audio on 5.3

I've tried compiling in support for sound on 5.3 STABLE adding 'device pcm'
to /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC but @ /usr/sbin/config -g 'pcm' generates an error
- this worked fine on 4.0, 4.6, and 5.1 - with on-board and add-in sound cards.
If I use 'sound' no error is generated but dmesg shows 
'pci2: <multimedia, audio> at device 10.0 (no driver attached)'
this happens if mobo soundMax is used or an add-in soundblaster live! 24 bit PCI.

pciconf on the soundblaster:
none2 at pci2:10:0: class=0x040100 card=0x10061102 chip=0x00071102 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
 vendor   = 'Creative Labs'
 device   = 'CA0106-DAT Audigy LS'
 class    = multimedia
 subclass = audio
So this card is really an Audigy LS - and no driver exists ?
Please advise
