You can put a mkMakeRules script into your plugin directory. For a rather 
complicated example, see unix/plugins/Mpeg3Plugin/mkMakeRules

It is called as 
	$unixdir/plugins/$plugin/mkMakeRules $topdir internal
	$unixdir/plugins/$plugin/mkMakeRules $topdir external
from the script
	platforms/unix/misc/util/mkMake ...
