Haven't tried to use it together with media-sound/mpd yet, but as it is now it isn't very useful. A default /etc/wildmidi.cfg should probably be installed, but the sources don't provide one, our ebuild doesn't provide one and the code is written in such a way that it doesn't write a nominal one itself when it needs to, and bails out:

I also wonder why the package doesn't belong to the sound herd.
Jeroen, can you please try to touch /etc/wildmidi.cfg and see if it works for you?
The package is not *yet* in sound herd as I didn't talk to them about this yet

I'm puzzled. Can't you do it?
Anyway, an empty cfg file makes wildmidi run, but I get no sound output, not even when I write to a WAV file. Audacity shows flat lines for each stereo channel.

No cause I didn't have access on my dev machines. Now that I do, I 've fixed it. Please reopen this bug if -r1 doesn't work for you
Please note that you need to keyword media-sound/timidity-freepats as well (have updated bug #333941)
