I fixed the problem by adding the following at line 876:

# Help OpenBSD find fftw
if config[config_kernel] == 'openbsd4.4':
        env.Append(CPPPATH="/usr/local/include", LIBPATH="/usr/local/lib")

then it complains about not being able to find liblo.
I turned that off with scons LIBLO=0
(OSC is not essential for running ardour)

Then it complains about not being able to find MIDI.
Currently scons only seems to support ALSA and OS X MIDI....

Maybe it is better to build Ardour-3.0 since it does not depend on
hardware MIDI support.
(Since it uses JACK MIDI).
