Thanks for the prompt response and the suggestions.
Setting the GST_REGISTRY_FORK to "no" doesn't seem to work for me. I was trying
to determine what the problem was, but I was unsuccessful in doing so.
I put the following line in my .bash_profile to set the GST_REGISTRY_FORK
environment variable, and I verified using the "set" command that the variable
is set. Is this all I needed to do?
I did pull the latest off of head, and my initial build had some problems with
the ./po/gstreamer-0.10.pot file, but after replacing that file with the version
from the 0.10.19 tar file, everything worked out fine.
The error I was getting with the gstreamer-0.10.pot file on HEAD is the
Making all in po
/usr/local/bin/msgmerge --update af.po gstreamer-0.10.pot
/usr/local/bin/msgmerge: `af.po': No such file or directory
make: *** [af.po] Error 1
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
Any thoughts on what could be wrong with this file or with the setting of the
GST_REGISTRY_FORK environment variable?

I think I fixed this already by making sure that on darwin we are not
forking to update registry.
Please try again in latest CVS head of GStreamer core.
