Ok, here's what I've done:

- downloaded libogg1.1.3 from xiph.org
- downloaded flac1.2.1 from flac.sourceforge.net
- system: Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.6 with Xcode installed

$ tar xzf libogg-1.1.3.tar.gz
$ cd libogg-1.1.3
$ ./configure && make && sudo make install
[ ... runs fine without any errors ...]
$ cd ..
$ tar zxf flac-1.2.1.tar.gz
$ cd flac-1.2.1
$ less README
$ ./configure && make
[... bails out with the error mentioned in http://lists.xiph.org/pipermail/flac/2009-March/001284.html ...]

btw: sorry for the missing linebreaks (I found out while looking for my original post in the list archives). This fu**ing Hotmail drives me wild - I guess I'll have to switch the mail provider.
