I guess that Juanjavier Martínez needs features supported by Ardour that 
aren't supported by Qtractor.

Correct, I build Qtractor from svn by using one or two of Steinberg's 
SDK headers on a 64-bit Linux, directly, not for a 32-bit chroot or any 
other trick. So it might be for native Linux VSTs only. I never was fine 
with VST on Linux, neither when using Qtractor, nor when using DSSI on a 
64-bit machine, but other people reported to be fine with VST on a 64 
bit architecture.

I can't relax when I'm abused, because I helped a user to find the 
needed package, while Paul didn't give a clear answer to the users 
question. And because I know that off-list is the better way to help, 
after the big Oz has spoken, I replied off-list. Unfortunately 
Juanjavier Martínez seems to speak similar broken English as I does, so 
it goes back to the list too.

Perhaps Paul should relax, he gets the donations. I just try to help for 
free. Pardon, that I'm a little bit pissed.
