It didn't work as this option wasn't recognized. I have no clue what the
correct options are and I am still puzzled as to where to find the
configure options after visiting the gstreamer website and CVS.

 ./configure --prefix=/usr LIBS=-lX11

That worked. Thanks Mark.


PS Later the evince and gnome-terminal complained about outdated versions
of poppler and vte. Both are present in the opt and gnome repositories.
And I'm done yet. Gnome is less smooth an install than expected. XFCE4
worked right out of the box. DS
