The .la files are libtool files for listing dependencies, includes,
version etc for the package they relate to.   The ices package itself
doesn't refer to libogg.la so I'm guessing something like
/usr/lib/libvorbis.la does.

Either way libtool cannot find libogg.la when it needs to, so I guess
there is a libogg/libvorbis installation issue.   You are correct in
thinking that the libogg-devel should have that file, just like
libvorbis-devel should have libvorbis.la.  I would check the versions
you have, make sure they are from the same place.
