Hi Chris,

If you don't know what plugins you need start small and add them as
you need them.  Depending upon your needs you could go from needing
none of the plugins to most.  I don't know what your plans are so
can't comment on what plugins you'll need.

To get things started you could either use cmake to disable plugins by
setting the 3rd party dependency paths to empty string to override
what cmake finds.  Another route, but more hacky is to go into the
src/osgPlugins/CMakeLists.txt file and just comment out the plugins
you don't want.  The later route isn't a long term solution but would
at least give you and idea what you can get running quickly.

On the Linux front I wouldn't expect many issues - it's the generally
the easiest platform of all to get working as most linux distribution
come with great package management systems that can install all the
dependencies for you with minimal fuss.
