You should read the manual for the FLAC command line utilities.   
There are many options that would probably achieve what you desire.   
In particular, one of the links that I sent below clearly leads you  
to a page describing how cuesheets are related to the SEEKTABLE, and  
you can create a --seekpoint= marker for each track.

Sometimes you really need to take the time to read everything  
available to you, especially when you have been waiting for months  
for someone else to read it to you.
