In Mandriva we start it via a script in /etc/X11/xinit.d/

With pulseaudio 0.9.11 it autospawns successfully, so it's no longer 
needed and an XDG autostart .desktop file takes care of X11 registration.

You could easily put pulseaudio in an .desktop file and put it in the 
XDG autostart path.

I'd currently recommend the xine backend for Phonon and the xine-pulse 
plugin... it's not the best integrated into Phonon, but I'll be looking 
into this at somepoint in Mandriva for the upcoming 2009.0 release.
