In that case, you do not have the gst-pulse package installed.

It may not be called that in your distro... We call it 
gstreamer0.10-pulse in Mandriva for example.

gst-pulse used to be packaged separately 
(http://0pointer.de/lennart/projects/gst-pulse) but is has recently been 
promoted to being included in the default gst-plugins-good
