There are two options, i think.

1) read that -
This way you can write a gstreamer element as part of your code and hook
it up to GStreamer at runtime

2) Just pick gst-plugins-bad source tree, create a new subdirectiry in
/ext,copy a makefile.am from /ext/sdl and adjust it accordingly.
Although you will not be able to build *just* that plugin, unless you do
cd /ext/yourplugindir before calling make. But at least your plugin will
be properly integrated in -bad source tree :)
