Refine your search. 

   Googling for ogg & encoder yields many good hits
   Googling for ogg & encoder & linux narrows that a bit to 1.5M hits. 

When looking for open source software, use a search engine just for that, 
such as at 

   Searching Freshmeat just for ogg, yielded 263 projects. 
   Searching Freshmeat just for ogg and encoder, yielded just 15 projects. 

I don't think you're going to find as many ogg encoders 
as you'll find MP3 encoders. I think most of the ogg
