Yep - libaudio.so.2   ;-)

On a more serious note, it looks like you either:
   a) used to have libaudio installed, and compiled something [1] that
      links it.
      [1] that something is apparently being linked by either qt or
          lyx (almost surely lyx), and then that something in turn
          is trying to find everything it links to.
   b) have a package installed from somewhere that wants libaudio, and
      lyx is linking to something in that package, which in turn wants

As you can see, it's essentially the same thing in either a or b.
