Ah, no. That's the default for locally-built packages. If you were on 
Linux and had installed libogg through a package manager, it would have 
been installed in /usr/share, but even on Linux, if you built it from 
source it would have been put in /usr/local/share (unless you passed a 
--prefix argument to configure to put it somewhere else). I was not 
aware that autotools looked in one and not the other.

All of the core CELT devs develop on Linux.
