Dependancy problems abound. You will need to install the "devel" versions  
of the various items used. Everyone has GTK installed from their distro,  
but not the headers and source that allow other programs to compile  
against it. There is a list of what is needed on the Ardour download page.  
You can't "make" unless ./configure completes without errors. Keep at it,  
you will get 'em all eventually.

It's worthwhile compiling Ardour, I think.
