First question - why are you specifying this gst-plugin-path ? Are your
plugins actually there ? If they are, why ? Doens't that dir contain
system libs ?

check with strace or gdb what the process is doing there.  Also, what
did you run configure with ? It seems you didn't specify anything
prefix-related to configure.

Are you used to cross-compiling and how to properly configure source
packages and so on ?
