Update of /cvsroot/pkgsrc/audio/flac2mp3
In directory

Log Message:
Initial import of flac2mp3, a small perl script to convert from flac
(lossless) encoding into mp3.

	With the cost of hard drive storage falling under $1 USD per GB,
	storing audio in a lossless format is now inexpensive and practical. 
	The FLAC codec is an OpenSource and Free software of very high
	quality.  The FLAC format supports meta-info as ID3v1 tags or OGG
	comments.  FLAC even has plugins for popular audio players such as
	XMMS and WinAMP.  This script also helps with the generation of MP3
	files from FLAC, whilst preserving the tags.  This way you can easily
	convert an album from FLAC to MP3 for playing on a mobile audio
	device.  You will need LAME installed and in your $PATH.  Using the
	script is simple:

	    * cd /path/to/directory/with/FLACS
	    * flac2mp3 *flac 

	After transcoding, you will have matching, tagged MP3 files in the
	same directory.  Note:  Only use this script on flac files that you
	trust to have non-malicous tags (ie, ones that you've created
