You can do it comfortably with theora-encoder script,
(to be gunzipped)
Note that in the script you can replace theoraenc by encoder_example,
they are mostly equivalent.
If you want an optimized and tuned encoder, I'd suggest running
theora-encoder present in konvalo.org's environment.
It uses a recent mplayer and theoraenc with an mmx-enabled libtheora
and adjusted encoding parameters.
Works on any Linux distribution, on FreeBSD and NetBSD as well.
