The plug-ins directory with its plugins is missing from the package.
Maybe a change happened in the makefile with the new update and there is a new option for copying them?

Additional info:
* audacity-2.4.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
The directory /usr/share/audacity/plug-ins/ is missing along with its contents.
This task depends upon

@TesX: Thanks for the report.

The *.ny files are indeed missing, but I assumed, that they are either not required anymore, or upstream has decided not to ship them anymore.
The files are still in the tarball, but the autotools based build system doesn't install them anymore.
I have created an upstream ticket tracking this:
As a sidenote: Upstream intends to switch to CMake as default build system and it's possible that those files will be installed out-of-the-box again.
Meanwhile I'll add them manually.
