Hmmm....  I wish it was that easy, but when the RealAudio client is
started and tries to play a .ra file, it just hangs.  I don't hear any
sound at all from the sound card.  I suspect a irq or port address
software configuration problem with the sound card for FreeBSD or the
sound card driver builtin FreeBSD isn't able to handle the sound card.
