hmm.  well. thats a good quesiton (with linuxulator?) now that you
mention it.
The port is marked BROKEN.  and if you unmark it as such you can't get
the distfiles.  So I pulled them off a machine I had it one from some
time (years?) back and built it.  It built fine.  Runs fine.  Digging
into var/db/pkg/skype* ... +CONTENTS says linux this and that....  so
I'd dare to say yes then.

There does not seem to be a config option in Skype that I can find to
set it to use OSS.  Just says '/dev/dsp' and /dev/dsp0'.

I'm not seeing the above in the ports tree.  :/
