It doesn't build or install the internal clearlooks module, so the GUI looks very strange indeed. Also the performance compared to 2.8 (which builds fine) is very poor, usually losing connection to JACK after a few seconds of playback or immediately upon starting. The GUI redraw performance is abysmal and so I think this is creating the JACK problem.

its a bug in the 2.8.3 tarball. i am very sorry about this. i will put
a new one in place today, and an announcement about it on ardour.org
