oggdrop is in the win32-tools module, in cvs. I would think it's also part of the daily cvs snapshots that you can get from xiph.org, but I'm not sure.
Jack wrote oggdrop, so I guess he's the maintainer.

This is really ugly, windows-specific, and completely unneccesary. Not committed. The calling and packing conventions, being conventions, ARE defined for a given platform. If you choose to change them, it's your responsibility to make sure you can still use other code (i.e. you're putting this 'fix' into the wrong place. It belongs in your code, not in the vorbis code)

The correct way to do this (well, the correct way is to compile the entire project with the same calling conventions. Anything else is silly.) is to use pragmas to turn on/off appropriate things (I'm assuming there's a pragma to tell the compiler to use the standard calling convention).

Then you do:
#pragma turn-off-some-windows-stupidity
#pragma something-else
#include <vorbis/vorbisfile.h>
#pragma turn-stuff-back-to-how-it-was

This is also ugly, but far less than putting all that crap into the header file directly.
