I am not sure this is the right dependency. Shouldn't this instead be a:

	depends on !BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB


The problem is really that we need shared library support, no that
specifically the FLAT binary format is causing problems. If another
binary format doesn't support shared libraries, then we would have to
exclude it as well.

Also, the configure script of alsa-lib has a check to verify if dlfcn.h
is available or not, so I guess it is supposed to fallback gracefully
to another solution if shared library support is not available.
