Your proposal is correct.
However, if there are other consumers of the
openalpp code, it might be worth asking osgaudio upstream to distribute
openalpp separately and support linking against the external library.
That was plan B. I'll be doing it, as upstream is rather busy.
Do you know of any other projects that depend on openalpp?
I don't know of any out of my head.
