This doesn't look good, the memory seems corrupted, it should be
outputting something like:
[pid/4110 +1177 auddev_alsa.c] ALSA version identifier == Advanced Linux
Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.16rc2 (Thu Jan 31 16:40:16 2008 UTC).
I think when I used to build RAT on x86-64 Fedora Core 3 (which RHEL 4
is based on), I used to disable building the ALSA support because I had
all sorts of issues with ALSA. For Fedora Core 4 and later I would build
the ALSA support. To disable building the ALSA support I think I used to
patch the configure script to avoid detecting ALSA or something.

I don't know, if RAT doesn't work I would be pointing the finger at ALSA
as the likely candidate for the failure.
