Actually, no I did not. I did read the FreeBSD Handbook, specifically
the portions dealing with sound and recompiling the kernel. Nowhere
did I see a reference to read the man page for the sound driver, nor an
example of how to install it in the kernel. I did, eventually, find an
example of how to install via the kernel by Googling for it. I believe
that the Handbook should be somewhat more specific though in this area.

In any case, thanks for all those who took the time to reply.
