 I encountered a build failure in `Building torbrowser-linux for wheezy
 i386` while testing patches for #21710. I had applied two patches on top
 of [https://gitweb.torproject.org/builders/tor-browser-
 bundle.git/log/?id=10f7b535456382823aaaece31fdd302ef7791fb5 10f7b53545]
 (the patches shouldn't have changed anything related to the torbrowser

 I had previously tested the two patches on top of
 bug_21753_v3] from #21753, and did not encounter an error. It only
 happened after I rebased the patches onto master.

 Perhaps you should add the directory containing `alsa.pc'
 to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
