FLAC support for PPC and Ubuntu 

I tried the 1.8.1 buils for OSX PPC and Ubuntu 16.04 x86 64bit and neither were compiled with FLAC support included. Is this just an oversight or was it removed for a reason?

Thank you for asking this question. In the case of OSX PPC, this should have been enabled but for some reasons isn't. Hopefully I can fix it for the next release.

In a bit more details: I compiled the FLAC library for OSX PPC and made it available in the toolchain. However, and I did not notice this before your post here, when compiling scummvm the FLAC library is not found (and as a result FLAC support in ScummVM is disabled). I will have to dig to find out why it is not found and hopefully that is just due to a stupid mistake that will be easy to fix.

Edit: This is fixed now. The OSX PPC toolchain uses a relatively old gcc compiler that errors out on a coma at end of enumerator list in a FLAC header file. Because of this error, it detected it could not use FLAC and disabled it.

The OSX PPC 1.8.1 release has now been updated. If you download it again you will get the new one with FLAC support.
