libfaac, libfaad2, libogmrip2, libmpeg4ip-0, libfaad-dev or the audacious engine

faad2 will be most appropriate

You won't get FAAC (the encoder) from most distro's because of licensing issues. But you can download the sourcecode.
Decoding can be done for example with ffmpeg, or the faad tool.
Example for ffmpeg:
ffmpeg -i record.aac output.flac

aac, audio, codec, decoder, encoder
