The only one I was able to get to work with applypluggin was the one you documented in the orielly article Delay_5s. Once I get more experience at c++ I will check it out again. I noticed most ladspa plugins were written in c++. Of course all these plugins work in a host program like snd or ardour etc ...

If you run analyseplugin on the .so file it will tell you what plugins are
in the package, what thier parameters and ranges are.

You can also use one of the LADSPA hosts to make your life easier.

FWIW I suspect that the majority of LADSPA plugins are ANSI C, not C++.
