In the latest versions of mednafen, since upstream release 1.27.0, the dependency of libsndfile is no longer needed and has been changed upstream to directly depend on flac, which provides libFLAC. Hence libsndfile should be changed to flac in the depends array of the PKGBUILD.

Upstream correspondent changelog snippet below.

"Notable changes since 1.26.1:
Dropped usage of and dependency on libsndfile, and added a direct dependency on libFLAC. The only CD image audio file formats/encodings other than raw supported now are: FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, Musepack, and uncompressed PCM in AIFF/AIFC, AU/SND, W64, and WAV."

Additional info:
* mednafen >= 1.27.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
Rebuild mednafen without libsndfile dependency, should be working as before.
