Build error or Execution Error in gst-rtsp server

I have just built gstreamer for Ubuntu 11.04 by configuring/making/make installing gstreamer 0.10.35 and the latest base, good, bad and ugly pl;uins.  All were built with --enable-orc and --prefix=/usr.  I apt-got various packages to get alsa, mad, lame, ogg, vorbis, theora and speex to builg.

Finally I downloaded gst-rtsp-0.10.8.  I configured with --prefix=/usr.  --enable-orc is not valid for rtsp-server.

Compile reports an error:

> configure: Using GStreamer Base Plugins in /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10
> checking for GST_CHECK... yes
> checking for check named check_pic  - version >= 0.9.2... no
> *** Could not run check test program, checking why...
> *** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for
> *** the exact error that occured.

The config.log is attacched.

Despite the error(s), the configure tells me to go ahead and compile and install.  Aftering installing I run ./examples/test-video which fails with "Server not attached".

Can some one tell me what's up here?
