According to the FLAC web site :
"FLAC supports from 4 to 32 bits per sample. Currently the reference
encoder and decoders only support up to 24 bits per sample."
I'm not sure if there exists an encoder/decoder wish *does* support 32 bit.
If you can live with a bitrate of 24 bits, sox will automatically do the
sox 96k_32b_file.wav out_file.flac
Apparently this was also discussed already in 2007 on the flac-dev
mailing list 
Notice that even soundconverter will most probably change the bitrate to
24 bit I would bet it is using the flac encoder anyway
