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?
