Developer note: When building from CVS sources, you will need to run
autogen.sh to generate the build system files.
Unfortunately, there is a bug in automake which causes it to use a large
amount of memory when generating plugins/Makefile.in. The following patch,
which you may wish to apply to automake (version 1.4), fixes this problem.
It is also fixed in versions of automake 1.4f and later.
Alternatively, ensure that you have at least 512Mb of memory on your system,
and be prepared to wait a little while when running automake (or autogen.sh).
GStreamer is cutting-edge stuff. To be a CVS developer, you need
cutting-edge tools.
The autogen.sh script will automatically detect an unpatched automake and give
a warning. It will also generate a patched version of automake in the top
build directory, which you can use by putting it in a directory in your $PATH
ahead of the unpatched version of automake.
ATM, most of use have at least these versions :

them.

- use real chaining where possible
- factory aliases?
* autoconf testing :
- SDL : seems to be ok now, test
- rtp : weird problem, can't get it to work with AC_CHECK_HEADER(S)
- arts : rh72 has artsflowh. in /usr/include/kde/arts
there's no arts-config
so what do we do to find it ?
- fix plugins :
wtay : the proper fix is of course to fix the plugins and
implement the cleanup in the state change function..
