Somewhere in the 0.5 set of release, gstreamer changed the format of its
pkg-config file so that the file is now called gstreamer-0.X.pc (where
'X' is the version number). This permits them to do parallel installs of
their developer platform (an application can query for gstreamer-0.6 or
gstream-0.7 or whatever).

I do not know what the story is with API compatibility between the 0.4
and 0.6 releases, but you _may_ be able to get around this by changing the
PKG_CHECK macro in (of monkey-media) to look at
gstreamer-0.6, rather than just gstreamer. However, this may just open
up a whole new roadway of potholes if the API has changed. You really
will save a lot of time if you find the monkey-media development list
and find out the story from there.

Maybe this helps.
