Too late already had done. All dependencies installed and pulseaudio was 
configured, compiled, and installed as instructed by Sean McNamara. 
Pulse will not start. When I start from gnome term I get the following:

I: caps.c: Limited capabilities successfully to CAP_SYS_NICE.
I: caps.c: Dropping root priviliges.
I: caps.c: Limited capabilities successfully to CAP_SYS_NICE.
E: module.c: Failed to open module "module-esound-protocol-unix": 
libsocket-util.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
E: main.c: Module load failed.
E: main.c: Failed to initialize daemon

Any suggestions as to where I should be looking?
