Ogg Vorbis for Debian
Ogg Vorbis currently does not have a shared library. it is a goal for the
future, but presently, any compiling using the codec should be done as
gcc [flags] -c X.c
gcc [flags] /usr/lib/vorbisfile.a /usr/lib/libvorbis.a \
X.o -o X
Of course, only include the .a's that are required for your program.

using the vorbis codec. The Makefile is only included to show how they are
compiled. It contains relative references to the libraries in the source
tree, so it will *not* work without being edited first.
The misc.h included in chaining_example and seeking_test just allows the
use of a debugging malloc. (defined in misc.c) It is safe to comment out.
