Other than installing gtk-1.2 development packages somehow and then
compiling old xmms 1.x, there is no way..

Out of curiousity, which plugin are you interested in? I'm surprised you
find it useful at all; I could understand if you wanted gstreamer plugin
support for mplayer or audacious plugins or something like that, at
least they have plugins for some obscure formats that mplayer can't
play.. But xmms 1?
