ldd /usr/bin/amarok  is insufficient if you want to prove that.
Examine libamaroklib.so.1.0.0, its symbols and what it is linked with.
If you don't want to use objdump and similar, even using "strings"
reveals something. It may be necessary to skim over the source code
to find out how and when these plugins are activated.
