Good question. Problem is I don't know if I'm truly pure 64-bit here.
I have a pure 64-bit kernel, I think, but I also have emulation IA32
libraries installed which I'm pretty sure Wine is using.

I'm doing apples as much as possible. Using the Crystal VST I can get
sound using Savihost under Wine and the Alsa driver. Latency is bad,
etc., and I want to run Jack, but I have Jack-0.100.5 installed and
Wine doesn't seem to talk to that version of Jack.

On the same machine xfst doesn't link. Notice the message:

winegcc -mwindows -o xfst.exe audiomaster.o fst.o fstinfofile.o gtk.o
jfst.o vsti.o vstwin.o     `pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0` `pkg-config
--libs jack` `pkg-config --libs alsa` -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11   -luuid
ld: Relocatable linking with relocations from format elf64-x86-64
(audiomaster.o) to format elf32-i386 (xfst.qiWLmx.o) is not supported

So I suspect that when Torben gets a chance to look at this he'll find
a way to make it work. (I hope...)
