Description yardbird 2005-11-12 01:58:37 UTC
At the present time gst-plugins depends on gconf-2. However this dependence is 
not strictly required, as gst-plugins can be built without gconf support. 
Besides, for those who are not using Gnome (like me :P) gconf pulls some other 
stuff, like orbit, which just adds bloat. 
So why don't we make gconf-2 dependency optional and add a "gnome" USE flag to 
the ebuild? The simple attached patch does exactly this. 

Reproducible: Always

This is being sorted for gnome 2.14 (gstreamer 0.10).  My local overlay already
has this split.

So please be patient.  Doing this now would affect many stable packages!
