I went ahead and looked at the source:

https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim/blob/master/gajim/common/configpaths.py#L67-106

It looks like what we want is PLUGINS_BASE to resolve to
"$GAJIM_PLUGIN_PATH/share/gajim/plugins". A more upstream-friendly way
might be to add another gajimpath, say PLUGINS_PATH, and add it here:

https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim/blob/master/gajim/common/gajim.py#L72

Would you like to try it?
