1GStreamer uses a *large* array of tools and libraries, most of which are
2optional.  We have attempted to make sure that any code that depends on
3optional libraries doesn't get built unless you have those libraries.  If
4you find this not to be the case, please, let us know by filing a bug
5report at http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?group_id=1936.
