[LAU] VST on Gentoo

You can't add win/x86 VST support to a 64 bit host and then use 32 bit
plugins (which almost all win/x86 VST plugins are at this point). VST 2.x
(which all current VST-on-linux technology is based on) contains pointers
in the API, and since a 64 bit host/plugin and a 32 bit plugin/host would
disagree on the data layout, it will just lead to crashes and/or wierd

This isn't a coding problem - it is a design flaw in the VST 2.x spec
(which was fixed in the VST 3 spec, btw).
