I used the new links from the theora.org site to download those files.  
libogg-1.1 built for me just fine, but when I tried to build libvorbis-1.0.1 
with ./configure and make, it crapped out on me with:
creating libvorbisfile.la
/bin/sed: can't read files/libvorbis-1.0.1/lib/libvorbis.la: No such file or 
libtool: link: `files/libvorbis-1.0.1/lib/libvorbis.la' is not a valid libtool 
make[2]: *** [libvorbisfile.la] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/john/downloads/theora 
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I could use some help.
