plugins-bad got dropped because the tarball got dropped from the Gnome ftp server. I don't follow gstreamer development, so I really have no idea why.

I changed the bootstrap setup a couple of months ago, but it looks like I missed the dependency on Bison in gstreamer. I'll fix that tomorrow. In the meantime, I think that if you add bison to the skip list, it will ignore the problem.

For your buildone gstreamer-modules-bad problem, are you passing a branch[module] in your jhbuildrc-custom or on the command line?

There have been some bugs reported in gcc-4.2 having to do with assembly, and you must use gcc-4.0 if you need Tiger compatibility. Other than that I don't know of any issues where it would make any difference.
