[openal] Upcoming OpenAL Soft release

The only issue I know of is that capture doesn't work (massive underrun 
problems)  on Windows/Cygwin/PortAudio due to the small number of 
default buffers provided by PortAudio (16 samples provided when 
paFramesPerBufferUnspecifiedis used) and the fact that their callback 
thread only seems to wake up every 5ms or so (which would require 50+ 
samples for 11kHz sampling) on my machine. I haven't talked with 
PortAudio but I kind of see it as their problem or a driver problem as I 
would expect a default value to work.

 From the OpenAL side of things, it would be handy to have some kind of 
way to configure how much latency could be handled on capture either 
through the API or in the config file to work around the problem. I 
suspect that might not be viewed as a quick little change to add in.
