I would like to mak e easy integration  of plugin like geocouch, or
what any other kind of plugins like application server , or stuff like

so yes maybe something like a pkg-config or stuff like it could work.
In this case that would imply to distribute plugins as separate
packages right ?  So the work would be to provide a common way to
packages to find couchdb includes ?
