I noticed something now, I was reinstalling gstreamer-plugins with -O2 
from -O with FORCE_PKG_REGISTER=yes and I kept running gst-register 
to see if it was just one plugin, and it seems (with further testing) 
that it is gst/modplug that needs to be built with -O2, everything else 
seems to work great with -O

Try building and installing gstreamer-plugins with -O then rebuild 
gst/modplug with -O2 and make install it then run gst-register and see 
if that works for you.
  (you'll have to manually edit the Makefile in gst/modplug and 

Also yeah, I think its a good idea to find out which flag from -O2 is 
needed for this to work right =)
