Yes, I have manually patched gst-ffmpeg myself earlier and still suffered from these undefined symbols when attempting to LOAD libgstffmpeg.so. Compiling gst-ffmpeg always worked fine after patching it for use with gcc-4.7.
Finally, in exasperation, I just decided to compile gst-ffmpeg without the --with-ffmpeg-extra-configure option. It again compiled fine and now LOADS libgstffmpeg.so without any errors. Your guess is as good as mine why gst-ffmpeg can't be compiled with --with-ffmpeg-extra-configure="blah blah blah" without spewing unknown symbols while loading.
I'll mark this thread as solved, but it really isn't ...
