Well, right now ardour won't find any native LADSPAs in
~/Library/Audio/Plugins, with the exception of any VST plugins you
have... which will actually show up as ladspas in ardour.

However, I agree that we should add ~/Library/Audio/Plugins/LADSPA/ 
and /Library/Audio/Plugins/LADSPA/ to our search path and make that a
new conventional install location for future packages, because it *is*
much more visible.  I didn't do it that way with these packages
because the current ardour DMG isn't set up for that yet.
