tbh VDR is quite unusual that it provides this 'template' system for
which plugins can base their Makefiles upon. Consider that most other
apps that provide extension points for plugins to implements only
provide pkg-config flags, and nothing else :)

Klaus is already doing people a massive favour by maintaining this
Make system and continuing to support it. The changes in 2.0 were well
agreed, refined and implemented. Any plugins that don't trivially
build within the new way should be left up to their maintainer to fix,
or interested parties to submit patches.
