OK, I understand,

I have cloned the git master and, starting with gstreamer, then 
gst-plugins-base followed by all the others, I have run and 
make - and I believe that for each got a successful conclusion.

I then tried to complie my program and I got
[gst-master] [ian at localhost superRecord]$ gcc -Wall JustTheCamera.c -o 
jtc $(pkg-config --cflags --libs gstreamer-1.0 gtk+-3.0)
/home/ian/gst/master/gstreamer/gst/ file not 
recognized: File format not recognized
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Where might I have gone wrong?
