liboil from [extra] is a missing dependency for the current gstreamer0.10-bad, gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins and gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg packages.

This omission has possibly been causing build failures for users trying to compile gnome-dvb-daemon from AUR (see for discussion) because the configure script tries to run "gst-inspect-0.10 mpegtsparse" and this fails without liboil installed:

(gst-inspect-0.10:18712): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/': cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
element plugin couldn't be loaded
No such element or plugin 'mpegtsparse'

Install liboil and "gst-inspect-0.10 mpegtsparse" succeeds.

Additional info:
* gstreamer0.10-bad 0.10.19-1
* gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins 0.10.19-1
* gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg 0.10.10-1
