Boy, wait till you see flac 1.0.4 :)  Actually, it's not that
bad but in 1.0.4 there are two new libraries libOggFLAC and
libOggFLAC++ that wrap around libFLAC to provide encoders/
decoders for FLAC in an Ogg transport (previously this was
a hack in the command-line flac).  The libs are also fully
documented with Doxygen.

And in 1.0.4 there are libFLAC.m4 etc. that look a lot like
ogg.m4 (funny that), so you should be able to do AM_PATH_LIBFLAC.

The flac 1.0.4 beta can be obtained here:


The official release should be in 1-2 weeks.
