In the section of 3.2 of the documentation (shown below the ----'s),
the rule text to add is this:

  cd xxx
  $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake $(PLUGIN_TARGET)
  cd ..

  This replaces everything shown below.  The couple lines on adding
xcopy are still accurate.

  In section 3.3, plugin_libs no longer exists, only the plugin_ldadd
needs to be done.   The text

if ENABLE_STATIC
plugin_ldadd = (plugin_libs)

else          # ENABLE_STATIC
plugin_ldadd = \
        "-dlopen" self  \
        "-dlopen" plugins/gryphon/gryph
        "-dlopen" plugins/mgcp/mgcp.la
        "-dlopen" plugins/xxx/xxx.la

  should be replaced with

if HAVE_PLUGINS

plugin_ldadd = \
  -dlopen plugins/gryphon/gryph.la \
  -dlopen plugins/mgcp/mgcp.la \
  -dlopen plugins/xxx/xxx.la

The other portions of the documentation appear to be correct.

3.2 Changes to plugins/Makefile.nmake

To the Makefile.nmake you need to add your plugin to the all: rule

all: \
        gryphon \
        mgcp \
        xxx

then add a rule for your plugin:

xxx:
        cd xxx
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake
        cd ..

and add to the clean rules support for cleaning up after your
plugin:

clean:  clean-local
        cd gryphon
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake clean
        cd ../mgcp
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake clean
        cd ..
        cd xxx
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake clean
        cd ..


distclean: distclean-local
        cd gryphon
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake distclean
        cd ../mgcp
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake distclean
        cd ..
        cd xxx
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake distclean
        cd ..


maintainer-clean: maintainer-clean-local
        cd gryphon
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake maintainer-clean
        cd ../mgcp
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake maintainer-clean
        cd ..
        cd xxx
        $(MAKE) /$(MAKEFLAGS) -f Makefile.nmake maintainer-clean
        cd ..
