No, VLC finds its plugins when you start it.

That should be possible with the headers and vlc-config matching the vlc
you have installed.
Also very few people build extra module outside the tree so we don't
have SDK package (except maybe on Debian) maybe we should.

Mark was describing the modification necessary to have your module
inside the tree and build when you build the whole VLC.
