    Well I got the tarball of this version on my Fedora 8 operating 
system. It unpacked just fine and I got busy with ./configure but it 
errored out like this:

checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for LIBSNDFILE... configure: error: Package requirements ( 
sndfile >= 1.0.10 ) were not met:

No package 'sndfile' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBSNDFILE_CFLAGS
and LIBSNDFILE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

    I will see if pkg-config man page helps. As a rule they don't :-)

This might point to why pulseaudio has a problem with Fedora.
