    gstreamer1-plugins-v4l2: fix for (some) webcams
    The gstreamer v4l2 plugin probes the DMA capabilities of the webcam
    device via ioctl VIDIOC_EXPBUF, expecting ENOTTY in case that's not
    implemented (and will act accordingly). On our cuse, we get EINVAL
    for that case (which, from my reading of ioctl(2) woulndn't be correct
    here), which gstreamer neither expects nor handles and thus cannot
    use this device as a video source. As we cannot fix the kernel on short
    notice (cuse is part of the base system), the workaround is to handle
    EINVAL like ENOTTY in this specific place. (Tested with an old
    Logitech camera).

    Actually allow the patchfile committed in r497171 to take effect, to
    fix the build on GCC-based architectures.
    The failure was not detected during my own testing due to a stale copy
    of the same patchfile in the masterport (not committed to svn).  The
    masterport apparently was able to build even with the patch in the wrong
    MFH to be determined.

    When linking a library libA with a library libB using libtool, if
    exists, libtool will add all libraries refers to (dependency_libs
    field) to the linker command line and store them in the dependency_libs
    field of  So everything that subsequently links with libA will also
    link to these extra libraries.  This causes too much overlinking.
    This commit modifies Mk/Uses/ so it empties the dependency_libs
    field in .la libraries during staging.  However, because .la libraries have
    very limited use when dependency_libs is empty it makes sense to completely
    remove them during staging.
    So with this commit USES=libtool is modified to remove .la libraries and a
    new form (USES=libtool:keepla) is introduced in case they need to be kept
    (dependency_libs is still emptied).

    Add Gstreamer 1.0.7. This is the new stable version of the
    Gstreamer multimedia framework.
    Use the USE_GSTREAMER1 macro to select Gstreamer 1.0 plugins. A new chapter
    for the porters handbook about gstreamer is a work in progress.
    X related plugins are now stand alone. The gio plugin is now part of the
    gstreamer1-plugins port and the oss plugins are now part of the
    gstreamer1-plugins-good port.
    Note that the pulseaudio plugin is missing because it needs a newer version
    of pulseaudio. Also there are still a number of plugins from -bad which
    haven't been ported to the 1.0 API yet.
