I think you can rebuild CinGG with this part of patch reverted:

basically remove "#" before motion-cv line, and build as usual....

Installed plugins on 32-bit system live (by default) in /usr/lib/cin/plugins,

for 64-bit look at /usr/lib64/cin/plugins

i think ....

not sure if binary plugins from older version of CinGG will work in new :/
