Yes there is – your detection method.

Bad advice, unless the known potential for remote exploits (admittedly
remote, but let's ignore that) isn't a problem for that particular
installation.

That'll be broken again by the next release (I've changed the naming), but
there'll be a benefit: once the plugin is rebuilt, you'll be able to avoid
rebuilding it unless you have need of some new ABI extension.

Or at least that's the plan :-)

(Incidentally, it was unrebuilt vdr-plugin-xineliboutput blocking xine-lib
migration into Debian testing – needed for security fixes – which prompted
this change...)

They are, but you should not use pkg-config unless your plugin is not
1.1-compatible.
