[gst-devel] A problematic automake/autoheader problem, (fwd)

so I've been scratching my head all day trying to figure this out and I 
could use some help.  The symptom was xvideosink not working with Xv 
stuff.  It seemed to come down to HAVE_XVIDEO not being defined at all, 
and that was also the cause of some unused variables trouble I used to 
have a few weeks ago.

Now, normally, autoheader creates config.h.in with templates for all of 
the plugin's HAVE_* defines, which then gets translated to config.h where 
they are either defined or not depending on whether configure decides to 
use it or not.

Ok, so on my current gstreamer cvs builds, config.h.in doesn't contain ANY 
HAVE_* symbol for any plug-in anymore.  That's pretty troublesome.
I went back to the 0.3.4 release branch, which does generate all of these 
HAVE_* symbols in config.h.in

I tried toying around with various fixes, but try as I might I cannot get 
the plugins HAVE_* symbols back in config.h.in.

My current set-up is RH73 with automake 1.5 and autoconf 2.52.

I know Wim, who is on debian, doesn't have this problem.

I wanted to know if some of you might want to check their most recent 
config.h file and check if they have HAVE_XVIDEO and other symbols in it 
or not, so I can try to resolve this...
