...I downloaded foo_input_alac.dll to the Foobar Components folder. In the Output format list of the Converter Setup window, neither ALAC nor ALE nor m4a appear....
CONGRATULATIONS! You now can use FOOBAR200 to tag and convert FLAC to ALAC!!!! Your iPod will thank you
Or you can use CUETools.ALACEnc.exe from CUETools (based on ffmpeg code, slower, but compresses a bit better).
What's the correct command line to achieve this? What files are needed to do this? ALACEnc crashes while trying to do it with CUETools.ALACEnc.exe, ...config and CUETools.Codecs.ALAC.dll in the same directory.

Added --no-optimize option. By default, qaac optimizes the MP4 container after encoding has finished. "optimize" means arranging MP4 box in a better order for playing and eliminating unneeded free areas. However, when you run qaac from foobar2000(or something), it will rewrite the MP4 container afterward. In this case, optimizing with qaac will be useless and just a time consuming process.
