hello all - this is probably something simple, but i am on-the-road and cant find a quick solution.  i cant seem to get the opus toolset to recognize the ogg library.  i was able to successfully get opus to work with FFMPEG, but not the toolset.

when i go to install opus-tools, i get the following message:
No package 'ogg' found

i would like to have opusenc working, since i have 700k audio recordings i wish to convert to opus now that chrome-33 supports it.   i am assuming i am better off to use opusenc rather than ffmpeg?

i am a big believer in keeping my installation scripts since there is absolutely no chance i will remember just what i did to get things installed, so once i get the complete installation script working i will publish it.
to install ogg, i followed this link:

here is my script so far and the results.  

curl  ftp://downloads.xiph.org/pub/xiph/releases/ogg/libogg-1.3.1.tar.xz    >libogg-1.3.1.tar.xz   ;

tar  -xJf   libogg-1.3.1.tar.xz  ;
 cd   libogg-1.3.1  ;
 ./configure --prefix=/usr --docdir=/usr/share/doc/libogg-1.3.1 --disable-static  ;
make  && make check && make install ;

curl  http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/opus/opus-1.1.tar.gz    > opus-1.1.tar.gz  ;

gzip -d  opus-1.1.tar.gz  ;
tar -xvf   opus-1.1.tar  ;

cd   opus-1.1  ;

./configure ;
make  && make check && make install ;

 ls /usr/share/doc/libogg-1.3.1  ;

 ls -lR  /usr  | grep  '/ogg'  ;

 curl   http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/opus/opus-tools-0.1.7.tar.gz   >   opus-tools-0.1.7.tar.gz   ;
 gzip -d     opus-tools-0.1.7.tar.gz  ;

 tar -xvf    opus-tools-0.1.7.tar  ;
 cd   opus-tools-0.1.7   ;

./configure ;

blah blah blah
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for OGG... no
configure: error: Package requirements (ogg >= 1.3) were not met:

No package 'ogg' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

thank you all for your work and your help.

Thank you,
Mark Edwards
