Although I am sort of impressed again and again by libsndfile and what 
they can handle, I'm no big fan of  "lib in a lib in a lib" deps- 
although I surely see the point in why you are doing that.

Yes, that was indeed the problem!
Mpg123 did cause my some linker issues at first, but after sorting it 
out and adding manually the .lib files to the linker (cmake didn't do 
that) it built fine and is now working. Great hint and obviously a good 
decision ;)
