Well, I made it partially compile, with this:

<unpack source>
chmod a+rx makeconfigure
<reconfigure with my options>

...but it bails on me:

/bin/sh ../../libtool --mode=link gcc  -I../.. -I../../include  -I/usr/include/glib-1.2 -I/usr/lib/glib/include -D_REENTRANT -I/usr/include/gtk-1.2 -I/usr/include/glib-1.2 -I/usr/lib/glib/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/include/gnome-xml  -O6 -Wall -L/opt/packages/gstreamer/lib ../../gst/libgst.la  -o libgsttypes.la -rpath /opt/packages/gstreamer/lib/gst -version-info 0:0:0 gsttypes.lo  -L/usr/lib -rdynamic -lgmodule -lgthread -lglib -lpthread -ldl -L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lgtk -lgdk -rdynamic -lgmodule -lglib -ldl -lXi -lXext -lX11 -lm -L/usr/lib -lxml -lz 
libtool: link: error: cannot link shared libraries into libtool libraries
make[3]: *** [libgsttypes.la] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/EXTRA/home/dg/src/gstreamer-0.2.1/gst/types'

I'm going to keep playing tonight and see what happens.
