Thanks Sebastian for your helpful response.

You mentioned that debian packages were available for the 1.8 release.
However, on the debian site for jessie packages, they appear to still be at
version 1.4.4, so I went ahead and built from your recent 1.8 tarballs. It's
always easier/faster dealing with official packages, but I still felt I
needed to be familiar with the raw build process so I can more easily stay
in sync with your official releases manually if required. So the time spent
today playing with configure/make/apt-get is well worth it to me.

I just found a useful resource and thought it might be of help to others if
they are building from the tarballs: 


Scroll down the page; they have a section for Multimedia Libraries which
includes GStreamer. They reference the most recent 1.8 release of GStreamer
and list the dependencies for the various tarballs/plugins. I wish I had
seen this before I started building from the tarballs--it contains useful
dependency information that lets you know up front what to expect when
building from the tarballs.  Hopefully that link can be of use to others who
want to build from the tarballs.
