To be honest I think all the code here is bad, so the comments are more from a "no regressions" point.
It seems you can assume it is there on OpenBSD, but pkg-config often ends up not installed on Linux quite often, and sndio exists on Linux.
So I would normally suggest to add pkg-config only as a fallback option like for the JACK case you mentioned.
But I am aware that also has its issues, and you didn't say why you want this change (which I kind of also need to know for the commit message).

Best regards,
