Personally I've never actively installed any sound port. Currently
alsa-lib and alsa-plugins are installed as dependencies of chromium and
firefox. Everything else I have installed works just fine with what's
in the base system.

Many packages that use sound, including vlc, are built without jack and
pulseaudio support. You'd have to build your own packages to get that
