1) /usr/local/  This can be changed with "scons PREFIX=/your/chosen/directory"
2) The source directory makes no difference to the installation location.
3) Ardour looks in /usr/lib/ladspa and /usr/local/lib/ladspa.
4) Ardour will also look in any directories set in the environmental variable LADSPA_PATH.

I am having some difficulty understanding directories and Ardour.  Of
curse, I built it most recently on OSX, which is inherently confusing.


Here are a couple of questions:


1 - Where does Ardour install by default?


2 - I Ardour's installation relative to the user or directory from which
the "make install" is called?


3 - Where does Ardour look for LADSPA Plugins?


4 - Is there a feature implemented that allow a user to tell Ardour to
look for plugins in a user-specified directory?
