OK, so there might be some configuration issues that are new.  For
instance, it mentions a whole bunch of gstreamer plugins that have to be
enabled by USE_xxxx.  Can't these be enabled if the libraries are
there?  Like faac, faad, libmpeg2?

I'm getting a core dump with totem-properties-page here:

gst_play_new (error=0x7fffffffdc58) at play.c:1334

because play points to NULL.
