haha, nevermind. I figured it out.
I didnt have the sdl stuff installed.
i got it working after installing the following.
sudo aptitude install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libalut-dev libopenal-dev libvorbis-dev libguichan0-dev libglu1-mesa-dev bcp
cool. so it compiled.
...now to compile the rest.....

okay.. I figured that one out too. I just needed to add a missing parenthesis after ".cpp" in the CMakeList.txt file in the OALWrapper folder. Apparently it wont build without this. I originally put the parentasis at the very end because it told me it was missing one, but that didnt work right...
this is how it looked before
this is how it looked after.
