No need to apologize; better for this to come up now than later.

I like option 3--or more precisely, the variation of making them
realtive to ${libdir}/krb5/plugins.  There's no use case for shared
object paths being relative to the process's current working directory,
so making them relative to libdir is harmless.  Absolute paths would
still be treated as absolute, of course.
