The Fix

Having had a bizarre "No Audio" issue in my Linux games, I'd given up even attempting to compile them for quite a while.
In all, there were 9 AGameAWeek games which didn't include Linux counterparts.
Well, Finally, the case is closed.

@thewizardslair has found the fix, and the fix was as simple as installing a little thing in Ubuntu!

1. Open "Synaptic Package Manager" (in the System Settings thingum, or hunt the system, it'll be in there somewhere!)
2. Search for libopenal

You want to install libopenal1 and libopenal-dev
With those two items installed, all my games should be nice and noisy again.

If not, @thewizardslair additionally suggests you install libjack0 and libjack-dev, but I didn't appear to need those. *shrugs* Even slightly different Ubuntu installations have annoying complications!
