[ardour-users] Setting up a gentoo box for ardour

Okay in answering my own question I thought I'd post it to help anyone
else.  I looked at the package script from the gentoo portage site, and saw
that it was looking explicitly for fltk, and if it wasn't installed then it
wouldn't compile the hdspmixer and hdspconf.  So I just added it to my USE
flags and emerge went and fetched fltk first, and then whalla!
So I'm happy now, after two straight days of compiling I have a bare bones
ardour system...I will be writing up a little howto soon, so others don't
have to go through such a steep learning curve.

Keep it up ardour fans...the revolution has just begun...
