I've just successfully installed gstreamer-0.8.1 from source on my
Slackware Linux system - very straightforward. My subsequent configure
of gst-plugins-0.8.1 also went well (the only omissions were of plugins
I don't need at this time requiring prerequisites I have not got), as
did the 'make', but the 'make install' terminated with:

I'll investigate and work around this, but I thought you should know
immediately I saw this error. I'll happily supply more details on
request, but probably won't be here again before Monday.
