I see now that you want to contribute to afvideosrc. In that case, you
should uninstall the gstreamer package that you installed using
Homebrew and follow the steps on that blog post to setup a
gst-uninstalled environment and inside that build gstreamer,
gst-plugins-base, gst-plugins-good, and gst-plugins-bad in that order.
You will likely need to install some dependencies using Homebrew.

All the best!
