[LAU] VST on Gentoo

I notice there doesn't seem to be any Vestige package in Portage, not 
even in the Pro-Audio overlay, but there is FST and VST-DSSI.  What's 
the typical way for Gentoo users to get VST support these days?  Never 
really cared before, but I'm think of checking it out now.

Also, I notice that compiling Ardour with VST support throws up a 
warning about trying to enable it on a 64-bit host being an adventure of 
sorts...  Any common strategy amongst Gentoo folks for doing that?
