I think that you are looking only at the external plugins. There are
lots of other plugins that have been compiled internally.

"SmalltalkImage current listBuiltinModules" will show you the plugins
that are internal to the VM.

If you do want to compile a plugin other than one of the ones in the
distribution, then yes you will need to build a VM with VMMaker.
