./configure --enable-static && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the

If you have Doxygen installed and you wish to build the library API documentation, run the following commands from the top-level directory of the source tree:
Now, as the
install -v -d -m755 /usr/share/doc/alsa-1.0.13/html && install -v -m644 doc/doxygen/html/* /usr/share/doc/alsa-1.0.13/html
switch is used to enable building the static library as some
programs link against it.
alsa.conf is adequate
for most installations. For extra functionality and/or advanced
control of your sound device, you may need to create additional
configuration files. For information on the available
configuration parameters, visit http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/doc-php/asoundrc.php.
