Oh, thanks, as I said, I am not a programmer  :-( . So I think that the man
page should be changed to avoid the same compiling nightmares I had. Man
page should match the souce code.

It would be a good thing that the card is detected automagically, so if you
need more information I will be pleased to help.
The good thing now  is that I can watch my TV programs while I study OpenBSD
;-)
