As normal user (if building as root you can omit the fakeroot and just
run the dpkg normaly).

for each directory (ogg, vorbis, ao, vorbis-tools) in that order,

cd (directory)
fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage
cd ..
su -c "dpkg --install <the package(s) it just built>"

You'll probably want to remove anything in /usr/local that building by
hand added by running make uninstall in each of those directories
before building the packages (of course you don't have to do that if
you never actually installed with make install).

If there is no ./configure in any of those directories, run
./autogen.sh before building the packages
