I don't really know... the MinGW complier was able to build
"libgstreamer-0.10-0.dll" and the other DLLs without a need for the
explicit declaration. I was also able to build and test other plugins
(-base and -ugly, including "mad") and they worked fine.

I've removed that declaration after taking a look at the
gstreamer-0.10.0 source code, which didn't include it (the author of
http://gstreamer.xeris.cz/winport/winport.html was able to build the 0.9
CVS using MinGW).

The application which I'm building still doesn't work - but I'm not
having any issue with unresolved symbols.

After getting that to work, I'll rebuild the system from a clean state
and I'll document the whole build process at
