Well, I figured out a *really* crude workaround for building RPMs.  I
basically gave up on getting the plugin to build before the FLAC
libraries are actually installed.

Instead I made the plugin part of the RPM conditional, so I can build
the flac and flac-devel RPMs without the XMMS plugin package, install
them, and then rebuild all three packages.

It's ugly, but it works.
