This should apply to many other architectures, but I don't know if all
buildds built alsa-plugins against the new alsa-lib. Maybe some took the
old ones (there was a shlib bump, should be easy to find out).
And yes, the problem specifically was a typo in configure.in, where the
plugin dir was set to "plugindir" instead of /usr/lib/alsa-lib/, due to
a missing "$". This appeared in version 1.0.14-1 only, was resolved a
few days later in 1.0.14.a-1.
