I'm just needed to figure out what's "wrong" with my distro.  It
turns out that it was an add-on package for the Wiimote that was
incompatible with the latest version.  I don't have a Wii, and
disabling that was a sensible choice for me.  Just recently there
was an update to ardour which didn't want to build on my formerly
ancient system, which was no fault of ardour's.
