Another issue is that neither the Readme file nor sndfile.pp mentiones that sndfile is licensed 
under the LGPL <http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile/>. Therefore, I think the FPC distribution 
violates the libsndfile LGPL license, as FPC itself is distributed under the GPL-with-linking

I suggest to rename the package directory to "libsndfile" as that seems to be the project's name
