One of the people I provide web hosting for* did it.  It's packaged up
for fink <http://fink.sourceforge.net> users**.  He doesn't subscribe
to any oggish lists.  I've used his port with esd, it might work with
the native sound drivers, I dunno.

To install it, either rummage around in:

or install fink and add the following to your /sw/etc/apt/sources.list:
  deb http://unixbeard.net/~richardc/lab/fink stable main crypto
  deb http://unixbeard.net/~richardc/lab/fink unstable main crypto
  deb http://unixbeard.net/~richardc/lab/fink local main crypto
and then install with apt-get install vorbis-tools.

The patches themselves are at:

* - Richard Clamp <richardc at unixbeard.net>
** - but don't go asking him fink questions.  That's what the fink mailing
    lists are for, and he'll get annoyed.
