There is a big difference between an environment variable being set to
the empty string, and the environment variable not being set at all.
Both will print nothing for this command.  As I mentioned earlier,
'export' will print all set environment variables.

Perhaps yours has been set to the empty string?  This will result in
zero plugins.  You can use 'unset LV2_PATH' to unset it.

All valid URIs, this looks fine.
