You can emerge the program keytouch. It will install very easily, and allow you to use the volume controls in globally. It will allow you to use play/pause, previous, skip, and stop in XMMS by default. If you want to control more applications then you will need to learn about writing scripts for xbindkeys.

You can PM me if you need more help.
