Hmmm... not really sure if you can do that easily.
There should be a way to do this change using the install rule in
case you know where you want those plugins to end up.
I guess one could implement a derived target type from LIB which
would use a customized extension but I am not sure how to do this and do
not have time to look into it at the moment. I believe the python
library does something similar with its python extension DLLs, so that
might be a good place to look.
Hope this helps.
