Ah, the famous Steve Dekorte!

conrad at bambam:~/src/xiph.org/theora% ./configure --help|grep ogg
  --disable-oggtest       Do not try to compile and run a test Ogg program
  --with-ogg=PFX   Prefix where libogg is installed (optional)
  --with-ogg-libraries=DIR   Directory where libogg library is installed (optional)
  --with-ogg-includes=DIR   Directory where libogg header files are installed (optional)

 -> just another libsndfile user ;-)
