No - you don't want /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10 in your library path. It's a
location for GStreamer plugins, not libraries that ld.so should be
finding for you. GST_PLUGIN_PATH is the environment variable for adding
non-standard directories to your GStreamer search path, but if you
compiled the GStreamer core for /usr, it will automatically be looking
at /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10

Sameer, check that /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10 contains a bunch of .so
files. It should if you've compiled GStreamer for /usr correctly. If the
files are there, but gst-inspect isn't picking them up, you'll need to
turn on some of the debugging categories to find out why. 

gst-inspect --gst-debug-help lists the categories. You can turn them on
by setting the GST_DEBUG environment variable.

<MikeS> thomas is pretty anal about changes now, though. He's allowed to
rearrange the entire cvs repository in bizarre ways, but other people
aren't even allowed to fix crasher bugs unless they can write testcases
for them.
