Thanks for you hints Ultima. 

Returning to the initial question, I still have not found a way to
split a large flac/ape file into mp3 tracks, and writing relevant id3
tags into resulting tracks, in accordance with the information in the
cue file.

I'm still trying to brew a stew from sysutils/bchunk,
multimedia/ffmpeg, audio/flac, audio/id3tool, audio/lame, audio/mac,
audio/mp3splt, audio/shntool with rather little success.
