plugins don't work on darwin/macosx

Bug Description

Operating system: Darwin (Mac OS X)
Vala version: 0.7.7
Valide version (or svn revision): r425

Plugins don't work on Darwin, they use the wrong shared library type...

They are being built with -dynamiclib (.dylib), while they should have
been built with -bundle (.bundle) in order to be loaded with dlopen(3)

I think this is a waf problem, it needs to build with mac_bundle = True

I don't have Mac, I'm interested by a tutorial for install Darwin on VirtualBox (or
another virtualizer).

The last time I tried, I could not find anything on
