Hello all, 

I would like to build gst-plugins-bad in my Mac (OS X El capitan). I am
eager to contribute on gst-plugins-bad, specifically avfvideosrc

I believe, I need to build the gst-plugins-bad first. Here is the steps I am

*Step 1*: 
I have git cloned the latest code from here,

*Step 2*: 
I ran "./" 

*Step 3*: 
Few components was not found (autoconf etc). I had installed those using

now, I am getting the following error, 

"*autopoint: command not found*" 

and there is no brew formula for autopoint. 

Full log is, 
+ check for build tools
  checking for autoreconf ... 
  checking for pkg-config ... 
+ checking for options
  This autogen script will automatically run ./configure as:
  ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-gtk-doc
  To pass any additional options, please specify them on the ./
  command line.
+ running autopoint --force...
common/ line 108: autopoint: command not found

autopoint failed/

Could anyone please help me to resolve the issue? Also what would be the
next step to build/run gst-plusgins-bad? any link/tutorial/resources would
be really helpful. 

Thank you in advance.
