Do you have a /usr/lib/libmad.so.0 symlink?  If not, then your system is
b0rked.  It looks like your libgstmad.so plugin is trying to link
against libmad.so.0, but you only have /usr/lib/libmad.so.0.1.0.

That probably won't help.

Did you re-./configure && make install your gst-plugins tree after
installing mad via RPM?  You will probably need to do that.
