Which should not be needed for FLAC, since this is an open format, not
a restricted or proprietary one.
But installing libxine1-misc-plugins might be helpful, it should drag
in libflac8 if this is not installed already.

Of course, make sure you use the phonon-backend-xine (see also in the
Systemsettings -> Multimedia -> Backend tab).
