Well, first off, silence really means nothing except that I've either
not had a chance to look at this, or don't have anything useful to add.

The LD_LIBRARY_PATH bit is not wrong per se, after all that is one
way to let dlopen find the module.

I actually don't know, however, whether finish_eval or finish_cmds are
needed for plugins, on some systems.  If somebody could do the research
and find out, that would be helpful.
