Good question! I don't really know, I'm afraid.. I haven't
built ardour with fst myself. I just thought it might be
the obvious problem with the PKG_CONFIG_PATH
variable. Probably I should have left the answer to
someone with more knowledge! :)

As a last desperate attempt:

You could try making a  libfst.pc file yourself. Looking
at the one for jack (/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/jack.pc here)
it's a small text file:


Name: jack
Description: the Jack Audio Connection Kit: a low-latency synchronous callback-b
ased media server
Version: 0.100.0
Libs: -L${libdir} -ljack ""
Cflags: -I${includedir}

so maybe something like


Name: libfst
Description: Linux vst support
Version: 1.7
Libs: -L${libdir} -lfst.exe -lfst ""
Cflags: -I${includedir}

*might* work.. But of course, it might not!

Probably best to wait for someone who actually knows
about this stuff to respond.. :)

Best wishes,

- Pete.
