configure: error: Essential library asound not found

I'm trying to compile the latest version of seq24 on Ubuntu 8.04, and getting configure error:
configure: error: Essential library asound not found

Can anyone tell me where or in which package I can find this library?
If I get another such error (this already the second), is there some way in general to find out which packages contain which library?

Install the asound library. I don't use Ubuntu but I can tell you how to find the packagename: the apt-cache search command or .
