Thanks for posting the steps to reproduce!  I think Craig is taking a
look (or has taken a look - I'm behind on my email) at this.

No, you do not need this portlet in order to deploy your portlet with Pluto.

Our website documentation needs to be updated, but take a look at 
http://portals.apache.org/pluto/v11/deploying.html.  Deploying your 
portlet into the Pluto Portal consists of two steps, assembling your 
portlet war file, and then deploying your assembled portlet war.

You can assemble your portlet using our Maven 2 Pluto plugin.  After 
your portlet is assembled, deploy your (assembled) portlet war file by 
copying it into the Tomcat webapps directory (I'm assuming you are using 
Tomcat).  Start Tomcat.

Web to the pluto portal admin page 
(http://localhost:8080/pluto/portal/Pluto%20Admin).  You should see your 
portlet listed in the drop-down box under "Portlet Applications." 
Select your portlet application.  Then select your portlet in the 
adjacent drop-down box.  Click on Add Portlet.  Web back to the test 
page and you should be good to go.

For this to work it is essential that your portlet war file is assembled
