I realize that, but figured he'll figure out a way to "make "(it) 
"uninstall" the plugins the same way someone who's compiling any package 
on their own would.  Since the "./configure --disable-<pluginname>" is 
the only part that's vaguely Myth-specific--although it uses the 
standard syntax, knowing what to specify after disable is helpful--I 
mentioned it because he'll need to know how to compile only the plugins 
he wants so he can "make "(it) "install" them.  I don't want to 
recommend any way of removing the plugins because I don't want to be 
blamed if something goes wrong.

Heh.  Funny message if you ignore everything that's not in quotes...  
Humorously descriptive message if you ignore everything in parens.
