yes, dual arch is a pain! I'm compiling PD right now in my chroot 
environemtn because it just ain't happy on 64 bit.

But I have a wonderful, working Ardour install, and a full suite of 
LADPSA plugins. I'm using the Gentoo ebuilds, and they compile and seem 
to run fine. I don't know how FC-3 handles them. Are you trying to make 
rpm's out of them? Try including -fPIC in the CFLAGS, as this is 
required for shared objects on 64 bit.

good luck,
