#585518 appears to be a wishlist change to support an unofficial port,
which wouldn't qualify for an exception on its own.

I'm ambivalent about #579025.  The bug log indicates that it doesn't
actually affect any packages in the archive, as it only occurs when the
install prefix is not overriden; it could break things for people
compiling local flac-using applications.  By your own determination
though, it's only a "normal" bug.

The log for #579025 also suggests that fixing it would require
rebuilding reverse dependencies; is that the case?
