Lazyfoo is always an option for SDL2. You should be able to generate sound with it rather than play files, at least the mixer example for the rust bindings does it. As for OpenAL, the OpenAL Soft implementation is as you said LGPL (GNU Lesser General Public License) licensed, which is an open source license. The source is available here. SDL2 is also open source under the zlib license, and SDL 1.2 and older is available under the LGPL license as well.
