the API docs have a little explanation:


the flac code is hierarchicaly organized; there are libraries
that implement encoding and decoding, with public exposed headers,
and command-line programs that use them.  any time you see:

#include "something"

the "something" will be looked up according to the compiler
include path, which is usually ./include (.h's that are private
to the program or library) then ../../include (public .h's
that end up being installed in /usr/include or wherever).

so the #include "FLAC/all.h" is src/flac/encode.c refers to
