I downloaded the src from the svn
installed scons (thanks for mentioning this!)
and compiled the plugin~ external with no errors

some cursory observations using test patches I built yesterday -->

- the [print] message does not print control parameters to the pd window:
error: plugin~: no method for 'print'

- the [reset] message returns this error message in the pd window:
plugin~: Warning: Plug-in defines activate() method but no deactivate() 

- sending the [info] and [listplugins] messages to [plugin~] make PdX 
crash immediately
