Description Brian Cameron 2008-02-22 01:54:29 UTC
I noticed that we were no longer installing the gstsubparse plugin in gst-plugins-base.  It turns out that the problem was caused due to tests in failing because "-Wall -Werror" is being hardcoded to some tests.
Not sure why this is necessary for a configure script.  Anyway, these options
should only be added when using GCC since they don't work with other compilers, such as Sun Studio.

I'm attaching a patch that removes the offending -Wall and -Werror references from  Can this go upstream, or can the configure script be smarter about only adding these options when GCC is being used?  Thanks.

	Don't hardcode -Wall and -Werror for configure checks, this fails
	with non-GCC compilers. Fixes bug #517991.
