I am trying to install the libav plugins from master/gst-libav.  The plugins
build but are blacklisted, inspecting the library shows the following error:

(gst-inspect-1.0:16935): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin
/usr/local/lib/gstreamer-1.0/ undefined symbol: XOpenDisplay
Could not load plugin file: Opening module failed:
/usr/local/lib/gstreamer-1.0/ undefined symbol: XOpenDisplay

XOpenDisplay appears to be provided by xlibs-dev but this has long been

Any workaround for this? 

Ubuntu 17.10.
