imo plugin handling is independent of the build system. i tinkered with
this, mostly in -uf, i did some configuration with autotools, but
there's no hard dependency on it. the point is, it works good enough
right now.

an empty m4 is there now.

this is interesting. using defaults (on linux),
 1. libgnucap.* should be in /usr/local/lib
 2. here, /usr/local/lib is listed in /etc/,
 3. and /usr/local/bin/gnucap is installed witout RPATH (intentionally).

also, if I remove the path from /etc/ (don't
forget to invoke ldconfig afterwards), i get (surprise)
$ chrpath /usr/local/bin/gnucap
/usr/local/bin/gnucap: RPATH=/usr/local/lib
$ automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.14.1
$ ./libtool --version
libtool (GNU libtool) 2.4.2

basically, autotools does what i would have implemented. if it doesn't
work for you, that's really curious. give me more data, i can try to
