I decided to give it a shot at school's Sun Blade 100.  It configures
allright, but compilation fails at:


gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../../.. -I/local/apps/Libraries/glib-1.2.8/lib/glib/include -I/local/apps/Libraries/glib-1.2.8/include -D_REENTRANT -I/local/apps/Libraries/gtk+-1.2.8/include -I/local/apps/Libraries/glib-1.2.8/lib/glib/include -I/local/apps/Libraries/glib-1.2.8/include -I/usr/openwin/include -I/nfs/home/users/simon/local/include/gnome-xml -O6 -Wall -I../../.. -I../../../include -c volume.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o volume.o
volume.c:27: sys/soundcard.h: No such file or directory
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `volume.lo'
Current working directory


Obviously, available GStreamer usage is of little use on Solaris until
there is a sunaudiosink etc., but it would still be nice to be able to
compile the framework, if not just for the purpose of writing that
plugin.  So, do you think that the new audio type system will be in
place before 0.2.0?  If not, I would suggest that autoconf checks for
sys/soundcard.h and disables all appropriate plugins.

Some other tiny comments:

* In README, it says "This is gnome-streamer, a framework for
streaming media in GNOME."  AFAIK, the name is GStreamer, and it's
trying to be a general non-GNOME-specific framework, right?

* In REQUIREMENTS, it would be nice to point out that the gtk+
requirement is going away, and that libxml and not libxml2 is the one
that is needed.
