LD_LIBRARY_PATH is irrelevant for plugins. Did you set TALER_PREFIX correctly to $HOME/.local/? In fact, is you main binary linked correctly? Do you have more than one on your disk? Is the plugin actually installed, or was libgnunetpq outdated/not found during configure? Are you using the latest exchange with Joseph's linker issue fixed?

I also had this problem, but didn't see it recently. Likely that it was due to the issue that Joseph has now fixed.
