Many thanks for the patch! It's now in. How can I install theora, so
that pkg-config knows about it?

I installed into ~/usr/ and I cannot find any .pc files. The only
files I found are in /home/ondrej/ext/libtheora-1.0/theoraenc.pc
(where I installed theora from), but those doesn't seem to be updated
about the installation:

$ cat /home/ondrej/ext/libtheora-1.0/theoraenc.pc
# theoraenc installed pkg-config file


Name: theora
Description: Theora video codec (encoder)
Version: 1.0final
Requires: ogg >= 1.1
Libs: -L${libdir} -ltheoraenc
Cflags: -I${includedir}

So since:

$ pkg-config --exists theoraenc theoradec

returns nothing, the setup.py fails:

$ python setup.py build
pkg-config could not find theoraenc theoradec: check PKG_CONFIG_PATH
