I have seen the same problem. Inline assembly is indeed assembly that is
embedded into a source file. My understanding is that the inline
assembly in the theora sources is in a format which is understood by the
gcc compiler, but not the microsoft compiler.
You do not indicate any reason why you need to compile them yourself -
why not just use the provided libs?
I would have thought that the problem of translating gcc-x86 assembler
to ms-x86 assembler was a relatively simple one. Perhaps someone with a
longer beard could advise?
