Understood, probably no more risk (maybe less) than attempting to build
them from source myself... :-)

I originally was going to build it from source, and was told to get it to
build alsa_in/out I needed the

But, I don't think that answers your question...

Ok, I'll have a try, I was looking for an output plugin in Audacity pref's
called jack. I'll check if I have a portaudio selection.
