This is already being done (by me) for the Debian packages.  I create packages

- The reference encoder/decoder (flac)
- The shared library libFLAC.so.0 (libflac0)
- The development library and headers (libflac-dev)
- The XMMS plugin (xmms-flac)

Personally, I think this is beyond the scope of the flac source distribution,
and should be left to those who are creating binary packages.  The makefiles
should just install the include files.

In fact, this was part of the patch I submitted to allow 'make dist' and such
to work, and it appears to be in 0.10 (include/FLAC/Makefile.am).  I wonder
why it isn't working...

Ah, I must have forgotten to add it in configure.in.  Here you go:

--- configure.in        2001/06/14 20:05:43     1.5
+++ configure.in        2001/06/14 23:55:44
