Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 ALSA zLib MPEG2

So as you see scummvm wants to open the plugins directory
which isnt created by `make install'. A workaround is to create an
empty dir.

Plugins are not really supported at this time.
Assigning to max as he was behind the implementation of them.

As khalek says. Lowering priority. It's not currently possible to install
ScummVM into any kind of /bin/ directory while in plugins mode, unless
you install the "plugins" dir next to it, too. That's so on purpose. Please
use a regular build instead.

Fixed in CVS. We now catch if the plugins directory can't be found and exit
with an appropriate error message.
