There's a mistake in the loading code in blender. It checks the plugin
to have execution permission. Otherwise it ignores it. But:

  drwxr-x---    2 root     root         4096 2004-08-12 11:44

Does not even have read permission unless you run blender as root. Do
chmod 755 /usr/local/lib/libyafrayplugin.so

It is strange since here "scons install" puts the right permission flags.
Anyway we have to change that check in blender and check only for read
permission. I didn't do it cause cvs was frozen when I discovered it,
can I do it now?

Anyway with your installation that won't work cause you can't read that
file as a user.
