[gst-devel] gst-plugins installation error

Yeah, some newer (or older? or different?) version of mpeg2dec (for example the 
current Debian unstable version) require an s/mpeg_sequence_t/sequence_t/ at 
that point which I figured out yesterday or so.

I haven't investgated why that suddenly came up though, but wanted to ask 
people on IRC about it.
So I'll ask here: Did libmpeg2 break API compat again? Anybody looked into this 
yet? Does this work on other distros?
