Package: gst-plugins-base0.10
Version: 0.10.30-1

While rebuilding this package on lenny, the configure script reports
the following:

configure: *** checking feature: Xiph Theora video codec ***
configure: *** for plug-ins: theora ***
checking for THEORA... no
configure: No package 'theoradec' found
No package 'theoraenc' found
configure: *** These plugins will not be built: theora


configure: *** Plug-ins with dependencies that will NOT be built:

This is with lenny's libtheora installed:

ii  libtheora-dev                     1.0~beta3-1+lenny1       The
ii  libtheora0                        1.0~beta3-1+lenny1       The

For the version of gst-plugins-base built in squeeze/sid, the theora
plugin gets built.  I suspect that the versioning on the libtheora-dev
build-dep should be bumped.  When I install the libtheora-dev package
from lenny-backports (1.1.1+dfsg.1-3~bpo50+1) and rebuild, the theora
plugin is built.
