Yes, you need libogg 1.1, currently only available from xiph.org cvs 
(see http://xiph.org/cvs.html for how to get this) to compile theora. 
libogg-1.0-4 is still libogg 1.0.

In case you're confused, theora won't help you play dvd video though. 
Much as we wish hollywood would adopt it. :)

Hope that helps,
