Hmm... -r 1.20 of src/libFLAC/Makefile.am (also tagged with
RELEASE_1_0_2__2001-12-03) has:

libFLAC_la_LDFLAGS = -version-info 2:1:1

I wasn't trying to sync up the lib version with the release
version.  But the API has changed enough to get a new major
rev according to libtool conventions (it has all of new,
changed, and deleted interfaces).
