where are you checking your dependencies against? do you have gcc installed? You shouldn't need sudo to do ./configure

Edit: A quick warning if this is the first time you've compiled from source (i.e. you don't have gcc installed) then you should really consider going through the process a few times with less critical software.

i checked the listed dependancies in the readme file against what i see in the Synaptic Package Manager. although i could be wrong due to n00bism.

i'll check the gcc when my updates finish :)

Quite often the readme file will assume you have a compiler installed and since a specific compiler isn't needed, calling gcc a dependency is kinda inaccurate. Once again I should warn you not to use your sound driver as a first-time compiling experience. Start by compiling an end user app.
