Looking again, I see that there was another patch to add PASS_INFO() and
other bits that the patch required. Sorry for the noise there.

In the mean time, I cribbed from the latent entropy plugin, and built
with the below applied:

        if (!plugin_default_version_check(version, &gcc_version)) {
                error(G_("incompatible gcc/plugin versions"));

With verbose mode, I see quite a few initializations, mostly in signal
handling. Something to add to the queue of things to investigate...
