Thomas did mention:

And he therefore did not understand that, to satisfy the dependency, he
needs the "development" package of his OS which supplies the actual
headers (and a required symlink).

It's not totally obvious, and the Wiki page concentrates on compiliing
your own dependencies, and libtheora even seems to have been dropped
(though the libogg section still refers to it).

That is indeed the solution, also in case any further such errors pop
up for other dependencies: Do install their "-devel" packages.
