Much obliged; I've grabbed the SRPM for arts and the .spec appears to have
the very knob that you allude to. I'll report the results in this thread 
for the
sake of others who might have tripped over this.

(Given that ALSA's the default for 2.6, I presume arts in KDE for FC2 
will have this
knob twisted from the get-go.)
