Just a quick thumbs ups:

I've used libsndfile-1.0.18pre24h for some weeks now on Slackware
-current, and haven't had any runtime issues, but there are a couple
of things to consider when building:

o There's a circular dependency on JACK (It's actually optional in
both sides, so it may not matter).
o This version wants the trunk version (1.2.1) of libvorbis. It can
probably be lowered back to 1.2.0 somehow as I don't think there are
any API changes in libvorbis (I may be wrong, of course), or it can be
build without Ogg/FLAC support.

Hope this helps, now I'm back to lurking mode...

Happy hacking!
