Description: Differently from gst-plugins-base and gst-plugins-bad, the package gst-plugins-good doesn't provide a .pc file, so any package that depends on it and use pkg-config to check if gst-plugins-good is installed will fail.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
gst-plugins-good 1.14.4-1
gst-plugins-bad 1.14.4-5
gst-plugins-base 1.14.4-1
pkgconf 1.5.4-1

Steps to reproduce:

1- Run `pkg-config --exists --print-errors gstreamer-plugins-bad-1.0`, no output, status ok

2- Run `pkg-config --exists --print-errors gstreamer-plugins-good-1.0` to get the error output:

Package gstreamer-plugins-good-1.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gstreamer-plugins-good-1.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gstreamer-plugins-good-1.0', required by 'virtual:world', not found
This task depends upon
