i compiled current CVS and tried running gst-player.  i used --enable-plugin-builddir.

What is that parse error coming from?  Is gst-player expecting to read some
settings out of gconf?  i tried running gconf-editor, but i didn't see
app/gst-player.  Does this only work after i type "make install"?  Surely
gst-player has sane defaults if gconf isn't available?

Victory to the Divine Mother!!         after all,
