The Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple and
supported on iPhone, iPad, most iPods, Mac and iTunes.  ALAC is a data
compression method which reduces the size of audio files with no loss of
information.  A decoded ALAC stream is bit-for-bit identical to the original
uncompressed audio file.

- libalac-makefile.patch update, OPTFLAGS must be used
at linking time as well.
- alac-endian.patch, fix endian conversion routines
* They were inneficient, use optimized versions provided by the OS.
* They were wrong, assumes for example that ARM is not little endian
and that powerpc is always big endian.
- fix cflags so large file support is enabled, GNU_SOURCE is defined,
strict aliasing is disabled and C++ inlines get hidden visibility.
