What I get is this:

autoconf: Undefined macros:
configure.in:159:  AC_CHECK_LIB(FLAC, FLAC__stream_decoder_new, 

Diagnosis: the "AC_" in FLAC__stream_decoder_new is seen by the 
autoconf parser, with then tries to find a matching macro (stupid, I 
know, which of course is not going to work. So if I change the 
offending line to

   AC_CHECK_LIB(FLAC, FLA__stream_decoder_new, have_flac_lib=yes)

autoconf stops to complain, but of course the check is not valid this way.

Exactly. Still, this should be fixed in the script. I'll look into it 
and fix it CVS if I can.
