First of all, sorry for breaking the reply chain but I just subscribed
to the list.

Unfortunately, it seems that pwlib's device discovery does not use
asoundrc. I tried ekiga today on a machine without any audio device but
pulseaudio and alsa redirection to pa.

Same result: ekiga does not find any audio devices but 
aplay/gstreamer/.. do.
