I'll always compile with ogg support, you can test if the ogg demuxer is 
inside the package using

rpm -ql libxine1 | grep ogg

If nothing is found, the demuxer is missing, otherwise you can check if 
the file realy exists. If all this is true, use

xine --verbose=99 /path/to/oggfile

and look at the output, xine tells you, what plugins are loaded. Is the 
demuxer plugin part of it?
