I guess this one got lost in the summer break...

My preferred solution to this would be if all plugins would include some 
global configuration into their makefiles for setting global default 
parameters for VDR and plugins. The best order would be to call such a 
Make.global before calling an existing Make.config, so that Make.config 
can still override these rules.

Until then, the only way is to add some version dependent defines before 
calling Make.config.

By the way: The current newplugin script also doesn't add largefile 
defines in case that no Make.config exists.
