This evening I have updated my configurations with latest 1.0beta2 libtheora 
packages from packman repository for openSUSE 10.2 /10.3

Manfred Tremel from packman project has not provided static library part for 

Hence both vlc-0.8.6d and vlc-0.9 does not link. I tried --disable-theora 
option, but libtool still stops on this error :

/bin/sh ../../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc -Wsign-compare -Wall -pipe -o 
libaccess_output_shout_plugin.a -L/usr/lib64 -shared -lpthread -fpic -fPIC -lshout -lvorbis -lm -ltheora -logg -u 
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib64/libtheora.la' or unhandled 
argument `/usr/lib64/libtheora.la'
make[4]: *** [libaccess_output_shout_plugin.so] Error 1
