Ekiga does not look for the plugins itself, but PWLIB is doing it,
independently of the location from which Ekiga is executed.

When you compile PWLIB, you give a --prefix option (defaults
to /usr/local/), that option determines where plugins will be installed,
and where it should look for them.

If it doesn't find the plugins, it means that :
- you have not run make install
- you have conflicting versions installed and the process is not linked
to the version of the library you expect it to be linked
