Original commit message from CVS:
moved plugin info from gstreamer/REQUIREMENTS
parent 8134777c
GStreamer uses a *large* array of tools and libraries, most of which are

optional libraries doesn't get built unless you have those libraries. If
you find this not to be the case, please, let us know by filing a bug
report at
