gst-python won’t compile

I’ve been having trouble compiling gst-python-0.10.13 over the last few days. Today, I decided to get this figured out. When emerging gst-python, I receive the following error:

Solution is to add ~x86 keyword to gstreamer (/etc/portage/package.keywords) and update it to the latest greatest (gstreamer-0.10.21). Make sure you update gstreamer before you rebuild gst-python again. Hope this helps.
