I've just released a new version of the OpenAL package on Hackage. That one 
and the previous release fixed two things which might be related to your 
problems (calling convention and #including headers when checking for constant 
values). Could you please give the new version a try and report the results? 
If things go wrong, a full transcript of the configuration stage and the 
generated config.log file would be very helpful.
