WARNING: track01.wav is not a WAVE file

Hi,
I have strange problems with flac on macintosh. Whenever I try to encode a file like this:
flac track01.wav -o track01.flac
I get the following error:

flac 1.1.0, Copyright ? 2000,2001,2002,2003 Josh Coalson
flac comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions. Type `flac' for details.

options: -P 4096 -b 4608 -m -l 8 -q 0 -r 3,3
WARNING: track01.wav is not a WAVE file; treating as a raw file
ERROR: for encoding a raw file you must specify a value for --endian, --sign, --channels, --bps, and --sample-rate
Type "flac" for a usage summary or "flac --help" for all options

But this is not true. The file track01.wav IS a wav file, e.g. FLACer can convert the same file to flac without problems. But /usr/local/bin/flac (installed by MacFLAC) as well as /sw/bin/flac (part of the fink distribution) both give the above error, regardless which file I try to encode. I even get the same "warning" when trying to encode AIFF files (flac then complains that they are not AIFF files - again not true). Do I miss any options?

Thanks for your help...
