audio/abcde: Drop MESSAGE and clarify DESCR

MESSAGE explained that the package, despite being "a frontend
command-line utility (actually, a shell script) that grabs tracks off
a CD, encodes them to ogg, mp3 or flac formats, and tags them, all in
one go." does not contain or depend on any encoders.  Explain this
surprising situation in DESCR, which should explain what the package
does, and give a parenthetical hint about encoders it might use.

Add support for encoding to FLAC.  Initially based on
but with some serious improvements by me (including documentation
updates, and in-line addition of vorbis comments with flac -T ...).

Revision 1.1 / (download) - annotate - [select for diffs], Fri Nov 29 02:37:21 2002 UTC (21 years, 4 months ago) by kim
Branch: MAIN

Preserve pkgsrc and distribution defaults better:
- use ${PKG_SYSCONFBASE} instead of hardcoded /usr/pkg/etc
- keep the ID3v2 default as distributed, and depend on audio/id3v2
- don't depend on vorbis-tools: just inform the user about the need
  to install at least one of the supported encoders
- sample config only has commented out entries, so install it only
  in the examples directory
