I found a work around, which will give me just a little bit more
time to do my distribution upgrade (I've already got a Fedora 10
install disc burned) at a comfortable pace.  I just deleted the
translation file that was causing me troubles with the build,

    rm gtk2_ardour/po/*NO*

My 2.8.2 build was successful with no other changes.  Ardour also 
appears to run.  But, I haven't exercised it enough to tell if I 
broke something.  I imagine removing the NO translation might be 
reasonably benign, if that's not the language I need.

Then I'll use ardour only with the libsndfile version required by
that version of ardour.  Thanks for keeping me from going down a
bad road.
