How would users select which one they want? gst-plugins is a dependency
for gstreamer, which I suspect few people install except as a GNOME
dependency. I'm not that familiar with the pkgsrc way of doing things,
but this sounds like the sort of thing that lends itself to either a
GST_USE_XINE variable or forcing users to either build against xine or
excluding it the way I did.
