In blender open a Video Sequence Editor window. Menu Add > Sound and open any kind of sound file (tried with wav, ogg, mp3). Blender issues an error message stating the file "could not be loaded".
It works perfectly when downloading binaries from blender website.

Additional info:
pkg: extra/blender 1:2.57b-2

this is because in blender-2.57b/CMakeLists.txt Audio/Video format support is disabled :
# Audio/Video format support
option(WITH_CODEC_FFMPEG "Enable FFMPeg Support (http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu)" OFF)
option(WITH_CODEC_SNDFILE "Enable libsndfile Support (http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile)" OFF)


and also you can add -DWITH_BUILTIN_GLEW:BOOL=OFF ( system glew, not bundled with blender)

excuse my poor english

Please try blender-1:2.58-1 in testing. I've added ffmpeg and sndfile codec support.
