I've seen packages like that.  I think vim is one like that.
But, I might not remember vim correctly.  If it works out best
from a packaging perspective, then I would have no problem with
that.  I've built a lot of RPM packages, hundreds.  Most of the
time this isn't needed.  It's build-time config changes that
usually drive this, and that's what ardour-vst is facing.
