Could you elaborate, please?
I noticed that you have shifted all the ENABLE_$PLUGIN conditionals to the
top-level Makefile.am instead, by modifying the SUBDIRS variable there. However,
this is not desirable as disabled plugins will be excluded from the release
tarball generated by `make dist'.
--enable/disable-$plugin should only toggle the building of the actual plugin.
