 Your .config showed that at least some of these drivers are
modules.  Section 7.4.4 may have some bearing (hope I've transcribed
this correctly, I'm stuck with a one-button mouse on this box) :

 in /etc/modprobe.conf

 install snd-pcm modprobe -i snd-pcm ; modprobe \
	snd-pcm-oss ; true

 Most of my boxes are either running CLFS, or weighed down with
custom rules, but I think this was the important part for getting
oss sound emulation working.

 However, my experience is slightly different - if /dev/dsp etc does
not exist, alsamixer bails out and I eventually remember that the
devices are probably missing.

 If that doesn't help, you maybe need to look at the BLFS book and
ask on blfs-support.
