Package: libgstreamer0.10-0
Version: 0.10.22-3
Severity: grave
File: gstreamer0.10
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

In Ubuntu Karmic, this package FTBFS.
As a reference, see these build logs [1] & [2].

The problem comes from the patch named
The subst function doesn't handle commas in its parameters and needs a
new variable containing a comma as a workaround (for more information,
see gnumake's manual [3]).

I provided this debdiff [4] for Ubuntu but we would appreciate if this
fix can be introduced in Debian.

Thank you.
