libao misses /etc/libao.conf file with
I don't know which output system it defaults to, but it should be the ALSA
because both OSS and ESD are deprecated (and aRts support is not compiled-in anyway).

Steps to reproduce:
install mpg321 on a system with ALSA only (no alsa-oss or esd)
try to play something
hear the silence :)
create /etc/libao.conf with default_driver=alsa as its content and try again
hear the music :)

BTW, the last line of mpg321 --help says that it was built with default libao output being libao (sic!) :-/
This task depends upon
