          Severity: normal

gstreamer-0.8 will use a wrong cache directory with current instructions. We 
are passing --localstatedir=/var/lib to configure which results 
in /var/lib/cache/gstreamer-0.8 as cache directory. This should 
be /var/cache/gstreamer-0.8 as per FHS 2.3. 
Solution: pass --with-cachedir=/var/cache/gstreamer-0.8 to configure. 
Another possible solution might be to use --localstatedir=/var, but I haven't 
tested this, and I think that it must be /var/lib for some reason related to 
scrollkeeper or something. Comments?
