Ardour4 only uses LXVST_PATH (linux VST, .so) as initial default (if it’s set at first start). After that you need to use

You also need to explicitly scan for plugins there.
For windows VST (.dll) the environment variable is VST_PATH but that’s only for builds with windows-vst support. The same rules apply. Just use the Preference pane.

NI Reaktor? on GNU/Linux?
If so I hazard a guess that it crashes in wine during scan, and ends up on the blacklist. (see Window > Log)
