1) if you just used "./configure" to configure gst-plugins-base, then the pkgconfig files are located in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig. pkgconfig files extension is ".pc"

2) verify that you have gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.pc in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

3) if not, are you sure that you installed gst-plugins-base ?

 I am compiling gstreamer for my freescale arm based board. i am
getting some errors when i compile it. actually the problem might be
with my side. because i dont know how to link all the files and library
 files we needed for compilation.
i exported the cross compiler path. after that i used ".configure"
command. In that i am getting this below error
"checking for arm-linux-gnu-pkg-config... no
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for GST... yes
checking for GST_BASE... yes
checking for GST_PLUGINS_BASE... no
configure: error: no GStreamer plugin base libs found
Configuration of glib library has failed"

Now i to solve this problem and how to link codecs with this compilation
and how to link codec libary files. please help me

you need to export PKG_CONFIG_PATH to include $prefix/lib

 . RUn pkg-config

 --list-all | grep gstreamer and check that it lists the missing ones. Make
its not picking up the host ones.
