libvorbis which is dependency of arts provides ogg/vorbis support.
Having libogg as a direc dependency is not needed, since libogg is
libvorbis dependency and thus becomes an indirect dependency. Even if
you don't include it as dependency of arts, it still will be installed
(as libvorbis dep) and used.
If you were to include it and examine package with namcap you'll see
that namcap gives you message like "libogg included but already
Keep the dependencies minimal. Include only direct dependencies in pkgbuilds.
