Thanks Tim,

More problems.  The reported that some Plug-ins would NOT be 
built - so that when I tried to test, the pipeline could not be built.  
So I have gone back to try to find the dependencies for those missing 

I now have it that reports that in gst-plugins-base, 
ivorbisdec and xvimagesink will not be built. (Everything else should be OK)
In the case of ivorbisdec, it reports
checking for
configure: No package 'vorbisdec' found
checking for vorbis_block_init in -lvorbisdec... no

In the case of xvimagesink, it reports
checking for XvQueryExtension in -lXv_pic... no
checking for XvQueryExtension in -lXv... no

I have not been able to identify which packages I should install to 
satisfy those requirements.

I then did a make anyway and the make failed with
make[3]: Entering directory 
   CC    libgstximagesink_la-ximagesink.lo
   CC    libgstximagesink_la-ximage.lo
   CC    libgstximagesink_la-ximagepool.lo
//bin/ld: cannot find -lSM

The make then errored it way out.

What is -lSM?
