Thanks for the bug report. GStreamer 0.10 is not maintained any longer, and
there won't be any more releases.

This has been fixed in git master and 1.x. It's nothing to worry about, the
test was just silly (checking that glib crashes for  certain programming error
where glib shouldn't really have crashed in the first place; years later glib
finally got fixed then):

    tests: remove silly test_fail_abstract_new check

    Our check would make sure that GLib segfaults when
    someone tries to instantiate an abstract type, which
    is an extremely useful thing to check for.

    In newer GLibs this is fixed and we get an abort with
    a g_error() now it seems, so let's just remove this
    check entirely.

Maybe you can skip the 'make check' stage of the build, it is not essential.
