[vlc-devel] VLC checking for external plugins when built with --disable-plugins

when compiling VLC to use built-in modules, i've noticed that it still 
scans for external plugins. is there a way to disable this behaviour 
through configure ?

it seems that a #define called HAVE_DYNAMIC_PLUGINS controls this 
scanning, and is always defined  if dynamic linking  is  possible on the 
target platform. I am proposing to have this #define turned off if 
--disable-plugins is configured.

some background: I've had requests about distributing a 
stand-alone/self-contained version of the activeX plugin, unfortunately 
if VLC is already installed, then there are problems regarding version 
mismatch between libvlc  in the activex plugin and  the version  of VLC 
already installed.
