        It turned out the audio files I had grabbed from the Net for testing
were encoded with an overly-aged encoder. I encoded something else, with
Pawlowski's latest winamp vorbis encoder plug-in, and everything worked.

        So all I had to do was take im_oss out of the Makefile (at the
suggestion of Michael Smith, after oss_ioctl wasn't found during
linking), and use -pthread instead of -lpthread (a peculiarity of
OpenBSD, I think).

        thanks,

-C
