Other plugins you would need to track down that are in the prod  
release are

CroquetPlugin (Croquet)
FloatMathPlugin  (Croquet)
FT2Plugin   (Sophie)
QuicktimePlugin (Sophie)
SpellingPlugin (Sophie)

I *think* all the source for these are in the platforms directory  
somewhere, mind who has ever checked?

Other that are in the tree but not in the build are:


Others floating about

SqueakTiffPlugin  (old, no interest from community for it?)

I usually do this before building the deployment copy just to ensure  
everything is what I expect, sometimes XCode just forgets to compile  
after many edit session in Development configuration mode and then  
switching to Deployment.

If you compile with the build configuration development you only get  
the powerPC flavor. Well you'll get the MacIntel flavor once I check  
in the 3.8.17 version.
If you compile with the build configuration deployment you get a  
universal VM (powerpc and macintel)  use getInfo on the app or lipo  
cmd to see what the binary thinks
