OK. I figured it out now. I need to escape the minus signs in the
examples in the man page text file (source for help2man) upstream.
I just fixed it upstream:

Thanks a lot!! I'm quite happy it made it. :)

Yes. The audio-related GStreamer can be removed, that's right. (done)
Also, I will verify that both -bad and -ugly are necessary. That might
take a little time, though, and I might need them quite soon, as I'll be

That's right. It's a runtime dependency. I will fix that upstream. I
guess the simplest way to do so would be to simply call g_spawn_async()
and see if it fails.
