Ok, I think that was really confusing. I can't see that this issue has anything to do with -ao pcm, sound also does not play when playing the file normally.
-ac a52 will work if compiled against liba52, otherwise the dnet/sac3/... support needs to be ported to ffac3 (did that already, now it's just a matter of getting the prerequisites into FFmpeg).
