Good inputs. Also, right now the CVS tarballs seem to have a problem
installing on some systems. Ardour requires automake >- 1.7. If I have
a newer version then on some systems (Gentoo) and can do

WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.7 ./autogen.sh

and everything works fine from there. However on my FC2/Planet setup
this doesn't work. (I still recommend doing it anyway.) On that system
I have to manually copy mkinstalldirs to a few directories by hand to
actually get it to install. After that it works fine.

My current preference for the configure step is

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-vst --disable-ksi
