[Users] usage of absolute paths in clawsrc

While trying to debug why the 'N' key does not behave I noticed that
clawsrc contains absolute paths to the plugins. I built another copy of
claws with different --prefix, which means the plugins can not be found.

Is there a good reason why absolute paths are stored, instead of looking
for 'foo.so' in ${pluginsdir}? I'm not familiar with the internals, but
to me it looks like a single ~/.claws-mail can be used independend from
the used --prefix (most likely not at the same time).
