If it works, but without sound, then it's an optional dependency

I suggest as optdep lib32-alsa-lib as a solution (is enought the lib32-alsa-lib) for sound support and without them work but with no sound
and is borring with no sound

the optdep for lib32-alsa-lib is enugh for sound

IMHO users should install lib32 alsa/pulse package if the use alsa/pulse in the 64bit system without that dep, but I won't object if someone adds an optdep. I do not like a hard dependency though unless the package only support alsa/pulse and won't work/be useful without it.

I've assigned Sven and Laurent since they handled a similar bug ~1 month ago.

I'd be fine with an optdep.

optdep is the best solution, it follow the way of wine and dwarffortress packages
