"make" and "make install" have always only compiled and installed the

You have to run "make build_all" and "make install_all" to get the
plugins too. As an alternative, there are make-targets for every plugin.

If you want to run a minimal Olsrd setup, the "minimal" configuration
file might be the right choice anyways.
