I investigated, and found out that the libraries Alessio mentioned (mpc 
and musepack) can be (and are in the new version) safely removed.

I also checked the other plugins with bundled libraries:
~ wildmidi - old version of libwildmidi which is not in the Debian 
repositories anymore. 
~ sid - some changes to the API of libsidplay2 and libredist-builder. 
I don't think this would be relevant for Debian or upstream, since they are 
modifications to adapt it to the plugin. Some changes can be reverted and 
the plugin adapted to use the original API but many other not (as far as I 

What should I do with them?

I've also changed the deps of the plugins package to avoid cyclic 
dependencies (I move deadbeef to recommends), and to add a suggests 
(freepats is used by wildmidi).

New version available on Debian Mentors :)
