Correct. Take a look at plugins like RePlugin and SurfacePlugin. The
arrangement is explained in the swiki - http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/
squeak/2105 - and do please let me know of anything that isn't clear
so I can try to improve it.

Since pretty much all the plugins are cross platform I'm a touch
puzzled by your question.

If a plugin is added to the distribution then all platforms that can
make use of it will need some changes to their makefiles or
equivalent. In the case of simple plugins Ian's assorted config
scripts might be able to work out all the details for unix systems
and for RISC OS I can trivially add a rule, which covers pretty much
the extremes of clever automakers and simple manual ones.
