	Looks the the header files were checked into CVS but howto
	retrieve?  I did a full-bore update of 6.2 and didn't see 
	anything new (timestamp-wise) in the sound/ directories... .

	I'll rebuild and  reinstall.

	Anyway: experimentation has taught me that the snd_ad1816.ko 
	at least drives the BEL speaker.  So, while I hear the
	log[in|out] fuzzily, the other WAV sounds are clear.  Another
	thing: with snd_driver.ko installed (by /boot/loader.conf)
	I have *no* sound; with just the keydb driver at "YES" the 
	internal speaker works.  And the tiny red "[x]" is not
	displayed.)  With snd_sb16.ko or snd_sbc.ko I get some results
	by catenating /dev/sndstat.  But zero sound.  cat foo >/dev/dsp
	is not permitted as a test.  [ That html sound page is seriously
	out of date! ]  

	The only possibilities I can see are a bad sound card or the 
	banana plug in the wrong jack [ doubt].
