The nature of the error implies AVX2 support that is missing but I'm not 
much up on assembly,
make[4]: Entering directory `K:/usr/local/src/flac/src/libFLAC'
   CC       lpc_intrin_avx2.lo
R:/tmp/ccwvrScM.s: Assembler messages:
R:/tmp/ccwvrScM.s:495: Error: operand type mismatch for `vbroadcastss'
R:/tmp/ccwvrScM.s:8773: Error: operand type mismatch for `vpsrlq'
R:/tmp/ccwvrScM.s:8778: Error: no such instruction: `vpermd 
R:/tmp/ccwvrScM.s:8859: Error: operand type mismatch for `vpmovzxdq'

Best to be safe so updated patch attached.
I've also opened a ticket, http://trac.netlabs.org/rpm/ticket/165#ticket
