Dropping sound sample on linux ppc?

I downloaded these binaries with Altivec enabled:
The problem is that if I use the OSS output the sound stutters and is WAY
off. The sounds drops about 100msec/sec and is at least 5 seconds behind
When I use the ESD output, I don't get these dropouts, but I do get some
infrequent dropouts and the synchronization is off by a little
(characteristic of ESD I'm sure).
MPG123 works fine and all other sound applications also work fine. Only
VLC has problems.
Anyone else seeing these problems?
I want to try the ALSA output, but ALSA can't build the pmac driver on the
current PPC kernel.
