Hmm. /dev/sound/dsp doesn't exist either, but I find:

prh@wstn ~ $ ls -lL /dev/dsp?
crw-rw----  1 root audio 14, 19 Mar  4 13:40 /dev/dsp1
crw-rw----  1 root audio 14, 35 Mar  4 13:40 /dev/dsp2
crw-rw----  1 root audio 14, 51 Mar  4 13:40 /dev/dsp3

Now I find I've somehow omitted alsasound from the default runlevel;
putting it in there and /etc/init.d/alsasound start gives /dev/dsp as a
link to /dev/sound/dsp. So I've answered my own question, but I hope
I've also exposed another little fact.
