It may also be that you have a wrong version of some library.

Assuming the plugin is a shared object library (.so file) then you can 
use the 'ldd' utility to show its dependencies, e.g.:

ldd path-to-plugin.so

Any dependencies that are missing will also be indicated. Ditto for any 
executable binary files.

'ldd' isn't recursive so you may have to check each dependency as well.
