When you download the full source for FLAC and read the instructions,  
you'll see that 'make test' will run the test suite.  The  
instructions warn people that this can bring even a good machine to  
its knees, and it is not recommended for everyone to run it.  I have  
run it because I have submitted an installer package for Mac OS X,  
and it seemed prudent to take the time to test something that many  
people would use.  Anyway, the test suite is there in the source  
package, you just need to read the documentation.
