You can specify which gst plugins to build via the --with-plugins
option, though having to add new plugins each time a new one is
added is a bit of a drag.  --disable would be nicer.  There is
now way to turn on/off the plugins in gst-libs/gst, though.  This
is kind of a drag, since some of them (like riff) have possible
IP issues.
