It's in cpan.  And the new page is http://synthcode.com/code/vorbis/.

If you don't anything about wrapping C functions, you may want to
avoid XS like the plague :) It might be more worthwhile redoing the
wrapper in SWIG (which would be two steps in the direction of wrapping
vorbis for every language SWIG supports), or check out Inline::C,
which is *very* easy to work with.

That's what procmail is for (and why I'm first reading this 3 days
after it was posted ;)
