Elements are not provided for codecs provided by libavcodec-unstripped

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

Installing libavcodec-unstripped52 adds a number of new codecs to ffmpeg, particularly a number of encoders. However, when libavcodec-unstripped52 is installed, the list of gstreamer elements provided by ffmpeg remains the same.

I checked this by running "gst-inspect0.10 ffmpeg" first with libavcodec52 and then with libavcodec-unstripped52 installed. The output in both cases is exactly the same.

On Jaunty with package versions:

libavcodec52: 3:0.svn20090303-1ubuntu6
libavcodec-unstripped52: 3:0.svn20090303-1ubuntu2+unstripped1

The problem seems that gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg does not detected the libavcodec-unstripped52 previously installed and installs the stripper version.

As you point out, all the plugins provided by the unstripped version are not available.
