How would one join multiple .flac files into one gapless .flac?

Try audacity, open one, and drag the next file in after the first, then export it as flac.

You could try shntool with syntax like the following:

shntool join -o flac *.flac

You may have to experiment with the options for 'gapless' joins though...

I tried
shntool join -o flac 3.flac S.flac 1.flac S.flac 2.flac
and got
joined.flac in the order of: 1 - 2 - 3- S - S
not what I wanted: 3 - S - 1 - S - 2
I found sox will do it how I want it
sox 3.flac S.flac 1.flac S.flac 2.flac 3.S.1.S.2.flac
sox is dangerous - leave off the new file name and it destroys the last file with no warning! bye bye 2.flac - I'm testing with copies :)
