C++ built libraries have a tendancy to change at every release. They
should all have three digit sonames IMHO. I'll patch flac in the near
future. The strange thing is the audacity developer that builds with
Ubuntu 14.04 claimed that "my system libflac is claimed as
which again I can build Audacity against.".
