May I ask why this file and the one in gst-plugins-mad are necessary?
The stuff they provide don't need to be in the buildlink directories, so
they seem useless from bl3's point of view.  (jlam@ told me once that it
was better to not use files where not needed).

I've been using regular DEPENDS to use these gst-plugins-* packages from
other ones, like gnome2-media or rhythmbox.  They do, of course, include
gst-plugins' file to get the libraries (which is what's
needed in the buildlink directory).
