Ok, I deleted the reference to the library and ran make again.

There are some warnings and errors. I suspect the warnings cause the errors:

First warning:

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/jan/kismet-2010-07-R1/plugin-autowep'
g++ -I/home/jan/kismet-2010-07-R1/Airpcap_Devpack/include -I/usr/include/ncurses
-IAirpcap_Devpack/Include -IWinpcap_Devpack/Include -I/usr/include -I/home/jan/
kismet-2010-07-R1 -g -fPIC -c -o autowep-kismet.o warning: -fPIC ignored for target (all code is position ind

Second warning:
g++ -shared -rdynamic autowep-kismet.o -o -ldl -lstdc++
g++: unrecognized option `-rdynamic'

I suspect that one of these options instructs the linker to ignore missing references so that we can take the plugin and link it at runtime to the kismet process.

This then results in manny errors - here is a sample:
autowep-kismet.o: In function `_Z22kisautowep_packet_hookP14GlobalRegistryPvP10k
/home/jan/kismet-2010-07-R1/plugin-autowep/ undefined refe
rence to `MungeToPrintable(std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::
allocator<char> >)'
