Default Skype on OpenBSD

Here is the screen shoot of my DeLL Latitude D830 running
OpenBSD foo.my.domain 4.4 GENERIC.MP#844 i386

Is there are any chance that somebody send me the following library

from a Linux machine. It is the only hidden dynamic library needed to run Skype on OpenBSD. I linked libsalsa.so.2.0.0 instead of real libasound.so.2
but I think it makes application sluggish.
It is needed for idiotic GUI. This is the version of Skype with OSS static libraries so ALSA and above library should not be needed for audio.
The listed audio device is /dev/dsp (which is synthetic voice on FreeBSD) but such audio device doesn't exist on OpenBSD so I will have to play now little bit more with audio.

Other than audio Skype does work and I am able to chat with people even
to see them since this is Skype 2.0 version
