I'll happily do what the developers suggest, but the build issues just
seemed like overkill to open bugzilla entries for, which would also have
hidden useful information from others that want to work with CVS code of
GStreamer. (That is, I consider others more likely to subscribe to
gstreamer-devel than follow all bugzilla activity or searching bugzilla
for every issue they encounter. Granted, the include issues are
something everybody working with CVS-versions will just fix themselves,
but I wasted quite a bit of time on the configure.ac one).

They are against the CVS-tree @ about a couple of hours before sending
the patches. Patch 2 is not required after David Scleef's commits that
were made about that time, and Sebastian Dröge has also addressed the
issue for Patch 4 now. Patch 1 and 3 still stands as valid far as I can
