If the live CD doesn't include the libraries required for these
plugins to work, then it shouldn't include the plugins either.

No. These errors indicate a broken install, which is not something we
should be working around or ignoring.

The small error window could be generated when a user attempts to use the functionality in question so that they know to load the missing libs.

This isn't really possible, and it's an awful lot of effort to go to
in order to save a few hundred kb of shared libraries.
