It would have been nice to have a bug report about this earlier.

Quoting <https://metacpan.org/source/XAOC/GStreamer-0.20/README>:

  NOTE: There is a separate Perl module for the 1.x series of the
  GStreamer C libraries, available at https://metacpan.org/pod/GStreamer1.
  The two C libraries, as well as their associated Perl modules, can be
  installed concurrently on the same host.

So it looks like libgstreamer-perl won't be fixed, but we should
probably package libgstreamer1-perl instead.
