Hi Andrew,

    when I compile latest git Wine as 32bit on my Fedora 23 (x86_64
arch), I get gstreamer configure error ("checking whether gint64 defined
by gst/gst.h is indeed 64-bit: no"), and gstreamer gets disabled by auto
configuration. I can solve the problem (gstreamer gets configured and
compiled) if I specify gstreamer include dirs manually:
GSTREAMER_CFLAGS='-pthread -I/usr/include/gstreamer-1.0
-I/usr/lib/gstreamer-1.0/include -I/usr/include/glib-2.0

    With automated settings gstreamer includes are set up as following
(please mind lib64 instead of lib):
-pthread -I/usr/include/gstreamer-1.0 -I/usr/lib64/gstreamer-1.0/include
-I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib64/glib-2.0/include

    Wine64 gets gstreamer configured and built just fine by default.

Is it some auto configuration bug?
