  If a program released under the GPL uses plug-ins, what are the

Yes, but that is irrelevant.  If all the parts are linked together and
distributed, then they must all have licenses that are compatible
with the GPL.  Simply putting some LGPL code in the middle does not
somehow magically eliminate the terms of the GPL.
