Hi fabads. In order to avoid the path quirks you can run the ardev 
script (in gtk2_ardour of your build dir). No need to install with 
this one.

> [root at pcbox01 bin]# ./ardour2

There's no good reason for doing this as root. You need to setup your 
user's privileges (via entries in /etc/security/limits.conf) so that 
user can run jackd with realtime scheduling rights and run jackd 
clients that need to share these rights.

Oh, and about the 64bit trouble you ran into: Don't know what went 
wrong with your build or install. Someone will.
