> have you compiled other apps like WINE to ensure your multilib toolchain is functional? i think i had to add some -L stuff to the fst autotools/makefile so it wouldnt find the wrong architecture's libs. you may have better results from running a VST host in wine, which has an optional jack backend

you cannot run VST's compiled against the VST 2.3 SDK on a 64 bit
platform. the SDK has confusion between sizeof(pointer) and sizeof(int).
this was in fact one of the main reasons Steinberg released version 2.4
of VST.

note that by 64 bit platform i mean a processor being run in 64 bit
