Inconsistency ..  one distro is different from another .. not good.

"Override" (comes before) is not "break" (fails to find it), but I
agree with you that what it does is less than ideal.

I think where this is going is to indicate the need for a different

So look at plugpath-2 as a different approach.  This one uses
gnucap-conf to specify where to find the plugins.  This is proof of
concept only.  There are coding issues that need to be fixed, but let
me know if you agree with the approach.

For the real code .. I am thinking to extend the CS (ap.h) class to add
another kind of constructor that reads from a pipe, then use it here
(and other places) to get config info from gnucap-conf.

I thought of reading a config file, but how do you find it?
