If you have some time today, could you answer one last question?  *How* do
I include 1.x into my build?  I switched repos from Dora to Master and
added these packages:

I am able to confirm that all three have been added to my project, but
gst-inspect-1.0 only shows me gst-core has actually been installed.  Plus I
don't think this includes anything from the gstreamer-imx repo.  If you
could give some basic instructions I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
Josh Kurland
