What you call "plugins" seems to be unrelated to Slurm, except for 
pam_slurm, so you don't "have to install" them.  You should install just 
what your users requireon the compute nodes, probably some MPI libraries 
etc., but that's entirely dependent on what you want to accomplish.

I recommend to use RPMs on CentOS 7 rather than installing from the source.
