Well, either your load-path is not set correctly or you are missing the file.
sha1.el is a file that is distributed with emacs. In my case, it is in


but depending on which version of emacs you have and how you installed it,
it may be in a different directory. 

Try locating it with

    M-x locate-library <RET> sha1 <RET>

If not found, try to find where standard elisp files are located in your
setup and see if sha1.el or sha1.elc is in there as well (e.g. try

    M-x locate-library <RET> files <RET>

That should certainly be found: check the directory and see if sha1.el
and/or sha1.elc is in that directory. If not, your installation is
probably incomplete. If it is there, try loading it with

   M-x load-library <RET> sha1 <RET>

If all of that works, the compilation of org-feed.el should work as well.
If not, send another note and include the output of all the commands above
as well as the version of emacs you are running:

   M-x emacs-version
