Nope, it still fails:

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../.. -I/sw/include -I../.. -I./include 
-I../../include -I/sw/include -O3 -DNDEBUG -fomit-frame-pointer 
-funroll-loops -finline-functions -Wall -W -Winline 
-DFLaC__INLINE=__inline__ -c file_decoder.c 
-Wp,-MD,.deps/file_decoder.TPlo  -fno-common -DPIC -o 
../../include/FLAC/format.h:144: syntax error, missing `;' after `const'
../../include/FLAC/format.h:147: syntax error, missing `;' after `const'
../../include/FLAC/format.h:152: syntax error, missing `;' after `const'

It looks like this time, it is due to my CPPFLAGS setting:

CPPFLAGS = -I/sw/include
DEFAULT_INCLUDES =  -I. -I$(srcdir) -I$(top_builddir)
CFLAGS = -I$(top_builddir) -I$(srcdir)/include -I$(top_srcdir)/include 
-I/sw/include -O3 -DNDEBUG -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops 
-finline-functions -Wall -W -Winline -DFLaC__INLINE=__inline__

All of those "-I$(top_builddir) -I$(srcdir)/include 
-I$(top_srcdir)/include" are getting put after the -I/sw/include which 
breaks things.

It looks like this CPPFLAGS is being added by your configure script 
from the dlopen check:
     test "x$ac_cv_header_dlfcn_h" = xyes && CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS 

But its still a bug in your buildsystem, all your local include paths 
should always be before user specified ones, CPPFLAGS or CFLAGS.
