Default Volume control icon Openbox
I tried to add the volume icon in taskbar tint2 (on my Openbox WM):

For this I use:

I followed the steps from there for oss:
./configure --enable-oss

configure: error: could not find soundcard.h
and recive that error: could not find soundcard.h

but with:
#cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 64bit 2009061500/amd64)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <HDA Realtek ALC663 PCM #0 Analog> (play/rec) default
pcm1: <HDA NVidia MCP7A HDMI PCM #0 Digital> (play)
pcm2: <USB audio> (rec)
I want the volume control to work with aumix .... I hope to manage him to function and why not to be a volume control mixer for all DE-WM.

Any advice? Thanks in advance!

pkg_add -r fbpanel
comes with a volume control and menu.

There is also a PBI for Pypanel which has its own tray and can also be configured (~/.pypanerc) to launch apps including audio mixer apps.
