FLAC is an audio CODEC similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed without losing any information.

Install FLAC by running the following commands:
LIBS=-lm ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
If you run the make check tests, it will take a very long time (about 34 SBUs) and use about 100 MB of disk space.
LIBS=-lm ./configure --prefix=/usr: libFLAC uses a function from the math library but is not linked with libm. Passing the environment variable to configure satisfies this dependency.
The FLAC package contains flac, metaflac, libFLAC, libFLAC++, libOggFLAC, libOggFLAC++ and libxmms-flac.
metaflac is a program for listing, adding, removing, or editing metadata in one or more FLAC files.
These libraries provide native FLAC and Ogg FLAC C/C++ APIs for programs utilizing FLAC.
