soxr missing from lib-src

Any reason why soxr was removed from lib-src in 2.1.0? FreeBSD doesn't have soxr in ports so now soxr support is broken.

We don't generally include libraries that are available in repositories unless Audacity requires a patched version, and it was assumed that lib-soxr would be available. In the case of FreeBSD that assumption was wrong, so it will be packaged in future Audacity releases. In the meantime, lib-soxr is available from SVN. Let me know if you need help obtaining it.

As far as I'm aware we don't have anyone routinely building Audacity on FreeBSD. You may be able to help with that and help pick up problems like this earlier ;)
