could I please urge you to use the same tool versions when 
creating releases independent on which user does the actual

I was just in the process of importing the 0.10.4 release
of gst-plugins-good into our internal repository when I
realized that the config.sub and config.guess files that
were provided with the latest release were older than the
ones in the 0.10.3 release.  And these older files do not
support our CRISv32 architecture, thus preventing us from
building without modifying the files...

Below are the dates/versions for some of the release files.

                0.10.3                  0.10.4
                ------                  ------
aclocal.m4      48 Debian 1.5.22-2      48
compile         2003-11-09.00           2005-02-03.08
config.guess    2005-08-03              2003-06-17
config.sub      2005-07-08              2003-06-18
depcomp         2004-04-25.13           2005-02-09.22
install-sh      2004-04-01.17           2005-02-02.21
ltmain.sh       1.5.22 Debian 1.5.22-2  1.5.16
missing         2003-09-02.23           2005-02-08.22

As can be seen above some files are newer in the 0.10.4 release, 
whereas others have regressed.
