I ran into difficulty trying to follow J. Grant's lead in building theora with
libogg-1.1.tar.gz, libvorbis-1.0.1.tar.gz, and libtheora-1.0alpha3.tar.gz.
The problem occurred while building libvorbis-1.0.1. J. Grant discovered
that the cause of the problem was that I had downloaded all three files into
a directory named "theora files." The space in that directory name was the
problem. Renaming that directory to "theorafiles" solved it.
I also had the link error with libvorbis-1.0.1 examples, and worked around it
by commenting out the line
LDFLAGS = -all-static
Also, while building libtheora-1.0alpha3, I got an error, unable to
find /usr/lib/libogg.la and my workaround for that was to copy libogg.la
from /usr/local/lib into /usr/lib.
