Installing ardour2 at the moment doesn't seem like a good idea to me; the
software isn't usable yet, especially when compared with 0.99.

My suggestion is that you don't install ardour2 at all. You can run it with
the "ardev" script located in the gtk2_ardour/ directory like so:

    cd /path/to/ardour2/gtk2_ardour/

You need to make sure that the files: ardour2_ui.rc, ardour.bindings and
ardour.menu are available at a location where ardour can find them, i.e:

ln -s /path/to/ardour2/gtk2_ardour/ardour2_ui.rc ~/.ardour/
ln -s /path/to/ardour2/gtk2_ardour/ardour.bindings ~/.ardour/
ln -s /path/to/ardour2/gtk2_ardour/ardour.menu ~/.ardour/
