Although I haven't tried it, you should be able to simply use the OpenAL and 
ALUT directories from the HEAD in the 6.4 branch. The only problem that might 
arise is that the Cabal stuff might have changed a bit, but I'm not sure 
about that. Anyway, this should be fairly easy to fix...

I haven't heard about that problem. :-(
