I'm strongly opposed to ports installing differently depending on
whether another port is installed. FreeBSD has partly gone down
that road and I don't like it.
However, I just realized we can handle this far more easily. Opera
uses an environment variable OPERA_PLUGIN_PATH to locate plugins,
and I think Netscape uses NPX_PLUGIN_PATH. We can drop plugins in
a central place and have the wrapper scripts set up the paths.
Suggestions for a location?
