xmms complains about object file missing

I am using Debian testing (2.6.13) with GNOME. I have installed alsa package(ran alsaconf also) and xmms player. Now whenever I launch my xmms player from the terminal screen by giving command "xmms", I get the following warnings:
ebian:~# xmms cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Message: device: default
Although I am able to play .wav files properly, why I am getting these messages? Do I have to install some additional packages of xmms to fulfill the requirement?

If you want to play .mod or .ogg files you will need to install the proper libs.
