There is no way to provide a binary package that is distro agnostic for dolphin plugins.

The only distro agnostic package for dolphin plugins is a source tarball and let people compile it themselves.

Or if you think it makes sense, you may want to contact the plasma team to include your plugin as part of the Plasma releases and then distributions will compile it for you ;)
