didn't try 32bit deb, but on amd the reason isn't the vorbis-tools. Libflac 6 
conflics with libflac 4, so selecting version 6 will deselect version 4. All 
these other packages depend specifically on libflac 4, so must be deseleted 
as wel.

I suspect that if libflac 6 really should replace libflac 4 it  should also 
provide package libflac 4 instead of simply conflicting with it.

Anyway, this seems like a libflac 6 bug. Did you report it ?
