Great ! It works ! :)
Thank you very much Ralph.

If I can suggest 2 small advices...
- Include the  _ogg_free  line  in  encoder_example.c ...
- I think it should useful to include in the theora source a small 
example like the one I proposed.
Smaller than  encoder_example.c  ...  perhaps  encoder_example2.c  which 
simply encode some programmatically generated images...
