emulated OSS, so I expect it should also work against a real OSS, but I
cannot guarantee that.
The MIDI backend must be selected at configure time with the
`--with-alsa' or (exclusive) `--with-oss' options. There is no default,
so one of these options *must* be used when calling configure. The
selected backend cannot be changed later without recompiling the program
(runtime selection of the MIDI backend may be implemented someday).
MIDI backends available on the target system are enabled by default; if
support for a given backend is not wanted, use the corresponding
`--disable-{alsa,oss}' option at configure time.
When the `-p, --port` option is used, the name of the MIDI port
determines which backend is used. For example, `/dev/midi00` selects the
OSS backend, while `hw:1,0,0' selects the ALSA backend.
