I committed
Gstreamer is now disabled by default.
To enable compilation of the GStreamer AVMedia plug-in now one has to
provide --enable-gstreamer, and configure will fail if you do not have
the headers and libraries (gstreamer-devel in Fedora, may be
libgstreamer0.10-dev in Ubuntu).

Oracle default builds came with the GStreamer AVMedia plugin, no audio
and video support on Linux is a no-go, IMO.
