When you say "FOSS/libre" you mean "GNU/Linux"? I can imagine FOSS 
environments which don't rely on the GNU build system. Also isn't making 
FLAC build equally nice and easy on all target platforms a worthwhile 
aim? This will make contributions from Mac OS or Windows users more 
likely, ultimately improving the project as a whole (e.g. the windows 
Unicode issue).
