Here are a few approaches:
1) Switch to "new ALUT" -- There is now a separate ALUT library
maintained and implemented independent of OpenAL 1.1's core
functionality. You could use that...
2) Not use ALUT -- You can implement similar functionality on your
own. You're probably just using ALUT to initialize OpenAL, load WAV
files, and exit. Initialization and exiting are trivial, and WAV
file loading isn't incredibly difficult (I can provide WAV-handling
BSD-licensed code to you if that's the holdup, or you can copy the
code out of one of the examples in the Windows 1.1 SDK).
