Open alsamixer and turn down the first slider, the master control. That
made the feedback go away for me... Of course, that's easiest done while
logged in from a computer... (I notice the most recent build I did took
away the vt100 terminfo file, so I had to copy that from my computer to
get alsamixer to work).

You can also tweak all the individual settings, so by doing this I could
turn down the individual speaker volumes (look for Amplified Left/
Amplified Right).
