It seems that for whatever reason, libgigeditlinuxsamplerplugin.so
isn't present in the Arch gigedit package. If I grab the latest stable
sources of gigedit from linuxsampler.org and compile them on a machine
that already has linuxsampler installed, the compilation produces a
libgigeditlinuxsamplerplugin.so lib that gets installed into
linuxsampler's plugin directory. qsampler (and jsampler) are then able
to start up gigedit properly.

I think it could be that gigedit checks to see if there's a known
linuxsampler plugin directory during the compilation, and this
directory might not be present during package builds:

$ ./configure
checking for g++... g++
checking whether the C++ compiler works... yes
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... a.out
checking for LINUXSAMPLER... yes
Found linuxsampler 2.1.0
Retrieving LinuxSampler's plugin dir... /usr/lib/linuxsampler/plugins 
Relative plugin dir: ${libdir}/linuxsampler/plugins

I imagine if that directory isn't present, the plugin might not be
