Ok, thanks.  I was confused, thinking that PrintJobPlugin was in some way
special.  Perhaps a line could be added to the documentation, indicating
that this is the general method for generating internal plugins, and that
PrintJobPlugin is being used for concreteness.

'Sources/src/vm/intplugins' would seem to be more in line with the 
naming convention in the XCode project.

I was finally successful building a VM with different internal plugins.
My problem was that the XCode project has 2 versions of sqNamedPrims.h -
one in the generated sources, and one in 'platforms/Mac OS' !?!?  It was
the latter that was being included.  Is this a bug, or is this intended
for some reason?

Giving this a try next.

Thanks again,
