The audiofile in GNOME CVS is supposed to have a lot of endianness fixes
already - you may want to try it. (Not sure how binary compatible it is
with 0.1.6 though).

Anyways, my main point is that you really need to get these patches to the
original authors of the respective packages so that they can be
integrated. The audiofile author is michael at 68k.org. The esound author is
ericmit at ix.netcom.com (that e-mail address reportedly no longer works
though - perhaps try getting things through raster at redhat.com instead).
