You could patch IcedTea to not use ALSA. It's some boring work of
compile, remove, recompile, re-remove... but in the end, it's just to
erase any native file that uses it for now. One example of code that
make use of ALSA for sure is the Sound API.

Let me know if you need help (I don't have access to a Mac and not much
free time though).
