they all work for me.  

i have been running into people who cannot find these scripts in the
menu.  i tell them to get the pdl and magically they work.

ask terral what it took to get terral text working on his computer.

in fact, when we were trying to get terral text around to show his girl
friend, we found that redhat had compiled their gimp rpm without the pdl
and he had to install the tarball to get it.

so. prolly you are right and installing the pdl does something else
magically ....  but doing that always works to get those plug-ins to
appear in the menus.
