When the correct version of the plugins is available and already built, the built-in option actually builds them into the main binary. This is for the likes and QNX and so forth that won't hand external sub-programme modules, unicies (posix-compliant platforms) should NOT need this.

    This probably needs some clarification in the docs.

    IMHO - there should be some sort of warning to the effect that if you
    use the option in *-plugins, something similar should be in the abiword

    there is an option in abi of --with-builtin-plugins

    trying not to be dense here, but I would see the two options combined as
    being either

    a - a selection of plugins is built into the binary, and others can be
    compiled and called

    b - abi will call extra plugins when required (if compiled and

    neither of which is the current effect
