Fix a regression that severely impacted compression levels.

Regression was introducted in commit 8bbbf564
(Feb 1 19:58:09 2012) when fixing compiler warnings. In src/libFLAC/lpc.c the

        ref[i] = (r/=err);

was erroniously removed because the left hand side, ref[i] was never used.
Obviously, the correct thing to do was to replace that line with:

        r /= err;

This code has not been officially released. The only people who would have
been affected are people who compiled FLAC from git between February and

The only adverse affect of this error was that compression ratio would have
been severely compromised. No audio is lost, and if anyone has a file that
compressed with a bad version of FLAC can decompress it to WAV and then
re-compress with a fixed version.
