moved plugin info from gstreamer/REQUIREMENTS

Original commit message from CVS:
moved plugin info from gstreamer/REQUIREMENTS
parent 8134777c
GStreamer uses a *large* array of tools and libraries, most of which are
optional. We have attempted to make sure that any code that depends on
optional libraries doesn't get built unless you have those libraries. If
you find this not to be the case, please, let us know by filing a bug
report at http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?group_id=1936.
Required libraries:
===================
The core GStreamer libraries are required which depend on the following:
the latest glib2, currently at v2.0.4
libxml2 (also called gnome-xml, available from http://xmlsoft.org/)
These libraries are all central parts of gnome, and are available from the
ftp.gnome.org or its mirrors, amongst other places.
Optional libraries:
===================
This file lists supporting libraries for which gst-plugins contains plugins,
as well as their minimum version. You can find the corresponding plugins in
