I read through man pkg-config and found the relevant information, edited 
and dropped the vamp.pc and vamp-sdk.pc files into place, and now, even 
though Rubber Band's configure script now worked, it still couldn't 
compile as it couldn't find the vamp libs. I really wish I knew why, and 
why it is I'm having so much more trouble with this single lib then I've 
ever had before with any other.

I'm ready to give up with a story about why mainstream music on the 
Linux desktop will never happen.
