First off do you have a 32 bit system or is this a 32 bit library on a
predominantly 64 bit system?

The groups should be irrelevant unless you are running in System Wide
mode (which I suspect you are not - it's certainly not the recommended
or default way on Fedora).
This happens when the libpulse client cannot connect to the server you
are running. Simple tests are using:
This tests a native client and an alsa client using the alsa libraries.
What I suspect is happening here is that you are running a 64 bit system
and that the above two commands will work fine.
However, the 32 bit libpulse that is installed on your system is looking
for a different location to communicate with pulseaudio server (this
*has* changed between 0.9.15 and 0.9.16).
It should just be a matter of building a 32 bit version of libpulse to
go with your git master version.
If I'm wrong with the assumptions please let us know :)
