There is a change in 1.3.0's flac.pc that causes pkg-config --cflags
to produce a different result.
The idea was always that applications should include FLAC's headers
as in the examples and other Xiph code. However, the old pkg-config
specs returned -I/usr/local/include/FLAC, so if you relied on
pkg-config and didn't run into an assert.h clash, then plain <xxx.h>
This was corrected in 1.3.0:
$ pkg-config --cflags flac
Although FLAC 1.3.0 is the first release after almost six years,
and the use of symbol visibility has caused a lot of superficial
differences in the libraries, there haven't been any significant
changes in the documented API.
