Don't forget that there is a hierarchy of places to look for plugins  
encoded in ioLoadModule() -
   if ((   handle= tryLoading(    "./",			pluginName))
       || (handle= tryLoadingPath("SQUEAK_PLUGIN_PATH",	pluginName))
       || (handle= tryLoading(    VM_LIBDIR"/",		pluginName))
       || (handle= tryLoadingPath("LD_LIBRARY_PATH",	pluginName))
       || (handle= tryLoading(    "",			pluginName))
#    if defined(VM_X11DIR)
       || (handle= tryLoading(VM_X11DIR"/",		pluginName))
#    endif

so there shouldn't be much need for compile-time specifying locations.
