It should be, relatively. The thing that stands out to me though is that the
names aren't formatted like 1.5 would format them:
snprintf(name, sizeof(name), "ALSA Capture on %s [%s]",
but your list is conspicuously missing the  section. You can use ldd to make
sure the executable is loading at the right lib.
If it is, you can run:
to get a list of capture devices. Then in ~/.alsoftrc, you can try setting:
default = plughw:x,y
where x,y are the card and device numbers respectively of the listed devices.
Opening "ALSA Capture on default" will then open the named device, which
hopefully one of them will be the mic.
