We've previously discussed providing some generic configure / build
support for plugins (standard autoconf macros intended for use in a
plugin's build system, for example). If in future plugins are supported
on Windows hosts (or any other hosts that lack a -rdynamic equivalent)
then such generic support will be increasingly useful because of the need
to link plugins on such hosts against a shared library or libraries that
contain most of GCC.
