Actually why is ENABLE_PLUGIN 0 on Darwin, it has dlopen and support
shared libraries? Really I think the way plugins are done are
incorrect, we should produce a libbackend.so which then the plugins
are linked to. This will allow plugin support for both Darwin and
Windows easier and help with the versioning issue too. Darwin support
will just work then as Darwin as dlopen (it has also this thing called
modules which seems like what -rdynamic does too but really module
support is deprecated the last time I looked).
