Gentoo - I know this one has been covered before, but there may be a few
differences based on peoples' setups.

USE="accessibility" emerge media-sound/ardour
I also have "media-sound/ardour ~x86" in /etc/portage/package.keywords to
allow emerge to use the Ardour ebuild from the ~x86 tree, which is
generally newer than the one in the x86 stable tree.
It is worth noting that in Gentoo, once you start getting into the ~x86
tree for ebuilds, you'll need to access many other ~x86 packages to
resolve broken dependencies, i.e. Ardour needs version XYZ of gtk+, but
that version of gtk+ is unavailable until you provide access to the ~x86
version. These can be set explicitly in /etc/portage/package.keywords, as

Portage generally does a good job of resolving package dependencies at
build time, but the main bit would be ALSA, however I use the ALSA
implementation that's built into the kernel.
Other important repositories:

I had to set the "accessibility" USE flag to build Ardour.
