I tried to build CVS HEAD, build is success on Windows.
But build is failure on Mac OS X, because you missunderstood my patch's
Mac OS X support part.

OpenAL/ must change two point.

1. AC_SEARCH_LIBS doesn't find framework's Library, Mac OS X can use
   "-framework OpenAL" flag instead of "-l openal" option, and FP_HEADER_AL
   FP_HEADER_ALC can find headers. So you must change to declare
   AC_SUBST([AL_FRAMEWORKS]) before checking to find library instead
   of before checking to find header.
2. OpenAL doesn't inherit platform parameter and dosen't declare  
    so $host_os variable has no parameter and "case $host_os in" doesn't  
   (I forgot this point earlier patch.)

I send patch to fix these points. This patch tested on both Windows and  
Mac OS X

And I send Mac OS X's config.log by CVS HEAD.
