Tested.  Are you sure this is needed?  My esd outputs sound just fine with and
without "-d /dev/dsp".

Filing seperate bug report in that esd is not enabled by default as a new user.

Hmmm... after double-checking ESD does work for me once I enable the sound
server startup in the Sound control panel.  It seems to me that I have to kill
off any ESD that is hanging around and wait for a new one to get spawned, but
that may just be me not properly trying things out.
