I'm not near my Gentoo machine right now, but I'd be interested to see
what happens when you do:

USE="VST" emerge ardour[rest of package name]

   All I looked at was the proposed ebuild in Bugzilla. It shows:

rc_compile() {
	# Required for scons to "see" intermediate install location
	mkdir -p ${D}
	scons DESTDIR=${D} PREFIX=/usr KSI=0 -j2

I think that this command will turn off KSI, which is on by default,
but it will not turn on VST support which is off by default.

I don't particularily need VST support. I'm just asking if it should
be included as an option.
