Bug Description

[Impact statement]
alsaloop, a command-line utility shipped in Oneiric's alsa-utils binary package, does not work because of a missing build-dependency on libsamplerate-dev.

[Development fix] / [Stable fix]
Corrected in r95 of and r2558 of

[Test case] (from the original defect report)
----------example from the manpage-----------------
alsaloop -C hw:0,0 -P hw:0,0 -t 50000
No libsamplerate support.
----------example from the manpage-----------------

[Regression potential]
Low - the additional build-dependency only affects (enables) the alsaloop utility.

[Original defect report]
Please add libsamplerate-dev to the build-deps of alsa-utils to make alsaloop actually work

----------example from the manpage-----------------
alsaloop -C hw:0,0 -P hw:0,0 -t 50000
No libsamplerate support.
----------example from the manpage-----------------

Hi Martin,

I've just upgraded to alsa-utils from oneiric-proposed and alsaloop works as expected.

The Bug has been fixed.

I also verify that the -proposed package resolves the issue.
