OK - I requested a build for libvisual-plugins for devel - the i386
package worked but the build server was unable to get a minimum build
environment for ppc or x86_64.

I have implemented the following change to libvisual-plugins in cvs:

%{__sed} -i 's?$LDFLAGS -Wl,-rpath,$x_libraries ?$LDFLAGS -Wl,?'
configure

The stops rpmlint from complaining about the rpath, so hopefully it will
resolve the issue.
The configure script unfortunately did not have a --disable-rpath
option.

fixed both of those, upload new src.rpm soon

It uses the patched source from Fedora Core that has had the patent
stuff removed.
The patched source doesn't regenerate the configure script - so
configure will fail if the autoconf etc. stuff isn't run.

I added a comment to that effect in spec file

It looks like those don't need to be there but *possibly* use to be
required in older versions.
I'll remove them.

I want to talk to Thomas Vander Stichele before I import.
I think he still has plans on packages for livna that are very similar
name, and I want to make sure they don't include any of these plugins.

I'm going to do one more mock build just to make sure it still builds
(it did before I made the suggested changes) and then the updated will
be at 

http://mpeters.us/fc_extras/gstreamer-plugins-extras-0.8.8-0.4.src.rpm
(will be 404 while I build in mock)
