Plugin creation question...

I initially generate my plugin via VMMaker, but my subsequent hacking
on my plugins use the simple 'PluginName translate' facility to generate
updated C files for my plugin.
If I use VMMaker each time, will this magically take care of the library
problems? Specifically, my plugin uses libglib and libxmms. When I attempt
to use it, it complains that it cannot find references to functions found
in libglib and libxmms. If I link the VM executable to -lglib -lxmms,
the problem goes away, however.
