Autotools has support for Python built-in, likely all that's needed is 
to somehow declare a dependency in the make file that each Python plugin 
depends on libgeanypy.la.

In normal Automake, it might look like this for a plugin "foo":

     fooplugin_PYTHON = foo.py bar.py etc.py
     fooplugindir = $(pkgdatadir)/geanypy/plugins
     #fooplugin_LDADD = $(top_builddir)/geanypy/src/libgeanypy.la

I'm not sure about the last line, but presumably there's a way in 
Automake to say "these files depend on that other file, install them both".
