That would explain it.

So the two options seem to be: use NULL instead of RBTREE_NULL or make all 
NSD symbols available to the plugins.  I'm kind of hesistant about making 
all symbols available:

1. I'd like to keep a clear separation between NSD and plugins.
2. -rdynamic is probably not a portable option.  This would either require 
messy configure scripts or the user must specify LDFLAGS manually when 
enabling plugins.  Or maybe libtool can do the job (time to read the info 

But I'm not looking forward to changing the rbtree implementation either.
