i'm trying to get VST enable, too ...

i have "fst" and "jack-fst" installed, so i was hoping it would just be
a matter of doing this:

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-vst

it all seemed to compile and install ok, but running Ardour brings up
the same old Ardour that was before - i can't see any option to add a
VST plugin, so i'm assuming i haven't done it correctly ...

what's the proper way to build with VST support enabled (ie - do you
have to export the path to VST SDK (with VST_PATH=?) before compiling;
do i need the fst libraries to be statically linked during build etc etc)?
