[rabbitmq-discuss] plugins not loading.

Hmm, interesting. I know absolutely nothing about the FreeBSD port, it's 
possible it's just broken since plugin activation is a new concept in 2.7.0.

(Is the packager around on this list?)

So it looks like rabbitmq-plugins is finding the plugins and writing the 
file in the correct location. RabbitMQ is then *not* complaining about 
the plugins not being found, it's not even trying to activate them. 
Presumably therefore it's not seeing the enabled plugins file.

So it's possible that the environment variable ENABLED_PLUGINS_FILE is 
getting set to some bogus value by /usr/local/etc/rc.d/rabbitmq. In 
theory that script should not need to set that variable at all, assuming 
it starts rabbit via rabbitmq-server. Which it should, but like I said, 
I don't know about the FreeBSD packaging...

Cheers, Simon
