Well, when I tried to debug ardourvst in wine, I got the message saying 
"libglib-2.0.so.0: unresolved reference to pcre_dont_remember_what". 
When then I tried to build Ardour without VST support, I got very 
similar error but at link time. After a not-so-quick (and totally 
unsuccessful) googling I decided to blindly install/update everything 
"pcre". And than -- bingo! That's my story.
