	Always glad to learn how to reel in the big ones. <g> As my
buddy Dave says, "Give a man a fish and he'll eat today; teach a
man to fish and he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day."

	For the sake of closure, or whatever, here's the result:

$pkg-config --list-all | grep sndfile
sndfile sndfile - A library for reading and writing audio files.

$pkg-config --cflags sndfile

$pkg-config --libs sndfile
-L/usr/local/lib -lsndfile

	Indeed, all the way to a GWC that compiles, thanks to Erik and

	Thanks for all the help, not to mention the fishing lesson. I'd
never have found the fishing hole, never mind gotten the hook
baited and caught dinner, my own.
