That would be Ian I think.

Here's the relevant ChangeLog entry:

2009-08-30    <piumarta at ubuntu.piumarta.com>

	* vm/sqUnixMain.c (main): squeakPlugin path defaults to VM
	executable directory.

	* plugins/SqueakFFIPrims/config.cmake: Explicitly include
	generated source in plugin_sources.

	* vm/sqUnixExternalPrims.c (ioLoadModule): squeakPlugins can
	contain ':'-separated paths.  Distinguish module and library
	prefix and suffix.  Try to load a module from each squeakPlugins
	path with module prefix/suffix, then try dlopen() with no explicit
	path and platoform's library prefix/suffix.

	* vm/config.cmake: Configure {MODULE,LIBRARY}_{PREFIX,SUFFIX}.
	Change default module prefix to "so.", suffix to "".

	* vm/sqUnixMain.c (main): Default plugin location is VM directory.

Yes, seems wrong. Did you try the latest sources too, instead of 3.10-6?
