When the correct version of the plugins is available and already built, the built-in option actually builds them into the main binary. This is for the likes and QNX and so forth that won't hand external sub-programme modules, unicies (posix-compliant platforms) should NOT need this.

This probably needs some clarification in the docs.
IMHO - there should be some sort of warning to the effect that if you
use the option in *-plugins, something similar should be in the abiword
there is an option in abi of --with-builtin-plugins
trying not to be dense here, but I would see the two options combined as
a - a selection of plugins is built into the binary, and others can be
compiled and called
b - abi will call extra plugins when required (if compiled and
neither of which is the current effect
