Since 1 or 2 weeks ago it's normal for the modules to not link to
libvlccore. It is because the main app ( vlc or the moz plugin) does
link to it so it'll be loaded in memory.

So check with ldd -r that libvlcplugin.so is really ok, check
/etc/ld.so.conf and rerun ldconfig.

If it's still not good, it might be that the vlc plugins don't see the
libvlccore loaded by libvlcplugin.so
