check your plugin search paths at the bottom of reg.xml. make sure
reg.xmls is up to date. is this an installed or uninstalled issue? glib1/2?

here's my take on the matter:
* some tests are regression tests for the gstreamer core. these should
be in tests/ imo.
* some 'tests' that we have now are actually just examples. most of
these should go somewhere in examples/. examples from the manual should
go in examples/manual/. another aspect of these examples is that they
typically use plugins that aren't from core.
* specific plugin regression tests should go in the individual plugin
directories and should ideally not depend on the presence of other
plugins. so noinst_TESTS=vorbisenctest, etc...
thanks for the work. i had general anaesthesia this morn' ;)
