Ok, then maybe a good solution for now is to have our ladspa package
generate an /etc/profile.d/ladspa.sh file at install-time that exports a
system-dependent LADSPA_PATH, like 

export LADSPA_PATH=$HOME/.ladspa/sse2:$HOME/.ladspa:/usr/local/lib/ladspa/sse2:/usr/local/lib/ladspa:/usr/lib/ladspa/sse2:/usr/lib/ladspa

...for sse2-enabled platforms (for instance).

Then plugin packagers can build and install any number of different
plugin builds as long as they land in directories known by the ladspa
package installer.

Same goes for DSSI_PATH.
