SELinux is not required by GStreamer and also not used directly by
GStreamer. This must come from some other library on your system that
depends on SELinux and is used by GStreamer, but you don't have the
SELinux development files available.

Also the official GStreamer GIT repositories are here:
and mirrored here:

What you're building looks like the incompatible version provided by
Kurento. For any problems with that version, please contact them.
