Other SB Live! users may find this info useful.

Audio didn't work for me with some the SDL toys that are on the 3rdParty
CD. After removing the disabling of MMAP during audio initialize from
the 1.2.6 nto driver, audio started working.

To rebuild as a shared library, you have to follow the directions in
README.QNX and re-run autgen.sh after running libtoolize, THEN run
../configure ...
