This most likely means it wants a core (libgstreamer-0.10.*) >= 0.10.23,
but actually links against an older version that doesn't have this
symbol. Maybe you haven't set up your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or whatever
correctly, either now or at build time? Check with ldd gst/.libs/_gst.so
what it links against.

Pass the --enable-experimental switch to configure or autogen.sh to
build the gio plugin.
