Thanks for your help, Ronald. Do you know of anywhere I can find
documentation of gstreamer's plugins, and especially of faac, so that
I can figure this out myself next time?
http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/documentation/ doesn't seem to have
too much information. Thank you.

Those create dumps of AAC packets without headers in them. Either
include it in a properly muxed file, e.g. "audio/x-raw-int,blabla !
faac ! ffmux_mp4", or use AAC ADTS headers, using
"auxio/x-raw-int,blabla ! faac outputformat=1". Both will play in
iTunes. The first can carry tags and so on (and it's what the iTunes
Music Store sells), the second is plain ADTS/AAC without anything fancy
(it's what radio shows use to stream AAC radio).
