No, don' t include in the bundle, they go to be system installed. (But 
they don' t need to be installed during build, we use the use_liblocal 
option for build time.)
  Guitarix app need them as well (and install them) if they build-ed as 
shared libs. Maybe it is time to break them out of guitarix and offer 
them as separate  lib-package?
(there is also the  --lib-dev configure option to install the headers 
and *.pc files as well, there is a python wrapper for it, and it comes 
with Glade support)
just found a Reference page at sourcearchive:
it's from a older version, but there have not so much changed in the libs.

The LV2 plug runs well in your jalv host, that's the host I use for 
Now, it also runs fine in qtractor-svn, after Rui have added support for 
lv2 1.2.0 somewhat quick.:-)
