Dear Maintainer,

Currently gst-plugins-base0.10 fails to build on ppc64el platform
because it fails to recognize that ppc64el supports ppc64el platform.
The root cause is that libtool and configure is outdated in the
package, and needs to be updated. The build log is available here:


The current version already uses dh-autoreconf, but disables the libtool
part as ltmain.sh is patched in 99_ltmain_as-needed.patch to force
--as-needed. Now that this is the default in Debian, this patch is not
needed anymore if the libtool part is run.

This is what the attached patch does. As this package currently blocks
the ppc64el bootstrap, an upload as soon as possible would really be
