Looks like it.

objdump -p /usr/local/bin/ardour (ardour-0.99.3 on AMD64):

/usr/local/bin/ardour:     file format elf64-x86-64

   STACK off    0x0000000000000000 vaddr 0x0000000000000000 paddr 0x0000000000000000 align 2**3
         filesz 0x0000000000000000 memsz 0x0000000000000000 flags rwx

I'll try James' patch as soon as I get time (probably this weekend),
unless someone else does it first.
