Before compiling the plugins, you need to 'make install' the MythTV
core to allow the plugins to link against the new MythTV libraries.
Have you done this? The errors:

/usr/bin/ld: warning: libmythavutil-0.20.so.0, needed by
/usr/local/mythtv.0.21/lib/libmythtv-0.20.so, not found (try using
-rpath or -rpath-link)

suggest you might not have done this, or the libraries are installed
in a directory that the plugin compilation does not know about. Does
the library exist in /usr/local/mythtv.0.21/lib/? Have you specified
your own custom install directory?
