do you have libogg installed?  when you ran configure, did it
give you a warning about libogg not being found?

I would guess that you don't have it.  you have found a problem
with src/test_seeking/Makefile.am that doesn't handle the case
of building test_seeking without libogg properly.

you can install libogg and that will make it build and also give
you Ogg FLAC support in everything (see the README for how) or
you have to edit src/Makefile.in and remove test_seeking from
SUBDIRS and DIST_SUBDIRS (test_seeking is not used yet in the
test scripts anyway).
