Shared configure build builds fine on OS/2, static, libtool wanted to do 
a hard link which fails here. Need to look better and make a bug report 
I guess.
Tests fail at,
fractional block size test (blocksize=33 samples=31) encode... ERROR
make[1]: *** [check] Error 1
Which I blame on a crappy dd port.
The build did complain and output a lot of errors in the doxygen phase, 
probably a port or version (1.8.17) problem, not a big deal.
Seems to be a code page problem with the test suite too,

K:\...\flac-to-flac-metadata-test-files>ls *flac
­ƒñö.flac         input-SCVAUP.flac  input-VA.flac
input-SCPAP.flac  input-SCVPAP.flac  ήΣÎòÎØ.flac
input-SCVA.flac   input-SVAUP.flac   Pr├©ve.flac

Guess UTF8 file names, libc here is still broken when it comes to UTF
Thanks for the work on flac,
