Ok, now CMake builds volk without orc support and it seems to work.
Given that there isn't an updated orc package for Ubuntu 10.10, what's
the recommended course of action?

One of the problems is that Orc is still new and went through quite a bit of churn last year. There hasn't been an update in a while, so it looks like things are maybe stabilizing. But we obviously needed some newer features, so we had to push the acceptable version number up. 
a) Live without orc support. Does it make much of a difference on x86?
The build-gnuradio script does not install or check for liborc.

Yeah, on x86 machines, you'll be fine.
b) Install orc from source. Messy, and causes problems if you later
install a package with a dependency on liborc.

I put a link to the download page at:

I do this on my 10.10 machine.
c) Install a newer liborc package from a PPA. A quick search of
Launchpad didn't find any.

d) Get a newer distro. Personally I'm not ready to deal with this yet,
and I suspect many users feel the same way because Ubuntu 10.10 is the
last pre-Unity version.

Ubuntu 11.10 uses Orc 0.4.14. And you can remove/replace Unity and make it use Gnome 2.
