   Can someone inform me the major reason why the Hurd does not yet
   have audio support.

Because you haven't implemented it. :-)

   I think the lack of audio support is a very large drawback.  How
   large effort is needed to enable audio, via e.g alsa?

It would be a huge job to do it.  First you'd need to port drivers to
Mach, then you'd need to write libchannel (libstore but for stream
instead of block devices) and do some other stuff that nobody has
pondered about.  Search the archives, and check the TODO file etc,
there was some discussion about it, but in general you are on your own
in how to figure it all out.
