(This is rather tangential to the bug at hand, but...)

You should probably be setting prefix=/usr/local during build, then
running 'make install prefix=/usr/local/packages/gstreamer' (or
similar) to install.  This will cause the build system to compile in
the correct (i.e., /usr/local/lib) pathnames, but install to a
different place.  This is the trick used by RPM and the Debian build
system.  Unless, of course, stow suggests doing something differently.
I'm not familiar with it.
