Yes you can.
1.List out the plugins you want to use.
2.Find the tgz packages, like gst-plugins, gst-extra-plugins, etc. in which 
those plugins belong. Dont use any other extra packages which you wont 
3. Build the gstreamer core distribtion using the traditional 
configure(mention your arch type), make, make install steps
4. Build the required packages, specifying all the plugins that you need. 
And install
5. Run gst-register

If you only require to use fakesrc/sink, you dont need any plugin packages, 
as they are built into gstreamer-core package, AFAIK.

You can customize the plugins you build and installation processes by 
passing correct option to configure.
