By the way, when I made gst-plugins-base-0.10.23, gio was listed as
a "plug-in with dependencies that will not be built".  Could this be the
problem?  I couldn't figure out how to get the make to include gio.

Also, in reviewing the steps I took, I see that although the make of
gst-python appeared to complete successfully, I have many messages along
the lines of "Could not write method ..." and "Could not write virtual
accessor method ..." and "Could not write interface proxy" and "Could not
write function ...".

The make of gstreamer-0.10.23 was clean.  The make of
gst-plugins-base-0.10.23 was clean, except for the gio issue.  The
configure of gst-python-0.10.15 was clean.  Only the make of
gst-python-0.10.15 was unclean.  I presume that I have the wrong version of
something, but there was no message to that effect in the configure.
