Theora is integer based, so there doesn't need to be a separate 
implementation like there is with Vorbis. The reference implementation
has --disable-encode and --disable-float configure options to reduce
code size by not including the encoder and to remove the few bits
of the API that require floating point support.

That said, of course an embedded device would benifit from some 
platform-specific optimization. We've not received any patches
of that sort, but of course they would be welcome.
