Currently I am aware of two, namely kexis and flac, both still in
development. Look for them on sourceforge.net. If you're lucky
you might also find some sources for OggSquish.

"Disclosed Source" programs mean software for which the source code is
available without confidential or trade secret restrictions and for which 
the source code and object code are available for distribution without
license charges.
