For loading plug-ins, LD_LIBRARY_PATH doesn't matter.  You can,
however, set GUPPI_PLUGIN_PATH.

By default, Guppi searches for plug-ins in:
1) ../../plug-ins  (This is for convenience during developing, since it
   will do the right thing when not installed if guppi is run from 
   inside of src/guppi)
2) The environment variable GUPPI_PLUGIN_PATH
3) From the directories specified in the C preprocessor variable
   GUPPI_PLUGIN_DIR.  This should be PREFIX/share/guppi/plug-ins/VERSION.
   (I think I got this wrong in a previous e-mail.)  You can grep for it 
   in the Makefile in src/libguppiuseful to be sure.

So if it doesn't work when you set GUPPI_PLUGIN_PATH, cd into
src/guppi and run from there.  If *that* doesn't work, maybe your
plug-ins didn't build properly after all...
